The much anticipated Africa’s Biggest Street Party held annually on the 28th of December in Calabar, Cross River State has come and gone.
It was a display of glitz and glamour as the five carnival bands danced round the 12-kilometre carnival routes from night till the early hours of the next day.
The colours on display by the various bands were exciting, bold and interesting, interpreting the 2017 theme ‘Migration’. Costumes and celebrities on display also added colour and panache to the event.
Thousands of residents, visitors and tourists lined up the streets to catch a glimpse of the colourful attires on display at Africa’s biggest street party.
Here are some pictures of the eye-catching outfits and processions.
