Africa ’s biggest street party, Carnival Calabar set to hold in December 2022.
This was approved Tuesday afternoon by the Cross River State EXCO in government house, Calabar.
Commissioner for Culture and Tourism, Eric Anderson moved the motion and was duly approved by members of EXCO that the Carnival Calabar should return in 2022.
The Government had to shut down carnival activities for the past two years due to COVID-19 , but council today made a case for its return seeing as things are gradually gone back to normal and His Excellency has given the marching orders to begin preparations in earnest.
On what to expect in this year’s carnival, Eric Anderson said “We have had a two year hiatus so we will be coming up with a bumper carnival program”.
He thanked the Governor for his continued support to the tourism sector in the state.
