Olamide, Salawa others for Lagos Street Carnival





COME Sunday, December 3, this year’s Lagos Street Carnival organised by the state government will display a high dose of spectacle as it showcases the state’s potential for tourism, arts and entertainment at a global level.

Coming after the success of last year’s street party, the one-day carnival will be held at Oba Akran Road, Ikeja with an impressive line-up of engaging activities scheduled to run from midday to midnight.

Organisers say that the carnival aims to meetup with the standards of notable and established international carnivals around the world with the participation of over 700 cultural troupes in colourful costumes in a procession including floats along the stretch of Oba Akran Road.

The event will also feature a concert which would parade artistes like Olamide, Lil Kesh, Humble Smith, Salawa Abeni, Osupa, Malaika, Terry G and several DJs.

The carnival also offers entrepreneurs and corporate brands the opportunity to exhibit and market their products and services. Activities and side attractions during the event include; Outdoor Games, Kiddies Corner, Bouncing Castle, Rodeo Bull, Carrousels and much more.

The Lagos State Government has assured revellers of adequate security measures as various security agents would be deployed at strategic areas around the venue to ensure proper security and free flow of traffic during the carnival.

According to the organisers, the essence of the Lagos Street Carnival is to create an avenue for people to have fun, unwind and network as it is done in other parts of the world.
