The season is going to be bubbling with so many activities and places to visit and have fun. If you are a tourist to Nigeria or just a fun loving Nigerian, there are some places to be this Christmas.
Calabar Carnival: This festival is tagged ‘Africa’s Biggest street party’ and it takes place in Calabar every year, It is a melting point for tourist to experience Nigerian culture with colorful display of dances, melodic presentation, boat regatta and many more cultural fascinations bound to get visitors excited. This is a delightful place to be this season if you are seeking to experience rich culture and festive dances all combined together, the carnival should be your pick this season.
Rhythm Unplugged: This show is a yearly entertainment concert that features the best of west Africa acts such as artists, comedians etc It is a place to get your groove on and enjoy good music from Nigeria’s finest. I recommend this place for any fun loving person this season.
Experience: This gospel event has turned out to be one of the biggest open field concerts in the world, with a massive turnout of people, It is a yearly event featuring both local and International gospel artistes, The highlight of ‘experience’ is in the experience itself, an opportunity for people to worship God with one voice and experience change. If you love gospel music and you love an open field with a massive crowd…… this is the place for you.
As the name implies marks the crossover from one year to the other in remarkable style(with good music)and also celebrating the culture of Lagos State, an opportunity to dive tourism to the city of excellence. A significant aspect of Lagos Countdown is the festival of lights when the governor turns on the light of the beautifully decorated bar beach and also the fireworks, live music and karaoke
So after the partying, music and dance you might want to head to the countryside, Olumo Rock is a place and tourist site located in Abeokuta south-west region of the country, The rock was a fortress for men specifically the (Egba people) who lived during the 19th century in Abeokuta and the rock provided a place of sanctuary for the warriors at that time, It has become a tourist spot with unusual trees, tunnels, and interesting pathways that would excite visitors and an escalator ride to the top, also at the top of the rock is a scenic view of the city of Abeokuta. what an exhilarating sight!!! I have been there and I encourage you to book this trip down in your calendar
Lekki Conservation Centre:
Located at lekki Peninsula and it is an awesome tourist spot, A place to be close to nature. A place with swamp and savannah habitat(Natural life) Different species of animals are also part of the experience of this centre. A good place for friends and family and an opportunity to be one with nature.
There are so many other places to mention, but I felt to emphasize more on the events as people would be looking for events to attend and places to go, there are other place’s though, So where would you be this festive season?
