EASTER 2014 LAGOS CARNIVAL IN PHOTOGRAPH

Lagos State has a long history of holding Carnivals, particularly on Lagos Island, as a result of historical links with the returnees and their descendants from Brazil, West Indies and Sierra Leone in the late 19th century.

The Lagos Carnival can’t be ignored as the carnival as always proves to be better always with fun in a more energetic pattern. The 5th edition of the Lagos Carnival tagged “LASGIDI” which comes up on Easter Monday 21st April 2014. All appears set, as the streets wear a festive look. Billboards, buses, effigies, and even water display all signaling the event. From the 5 Cowries Bridge linking Marina to Victoria Island, you can see giant figures dancing on water! Lagos is indeed in the mood for Carnival.

Band parades from Awolowo Road, Campos Square, and to Tafawa Balewa Square which is already bubbling with expecting hundreds of thousands attendee.

We share with you colourful pictures from the event as fashion, style, originality are being showcase!
