The parade was an artistic blend of contemporary modern cultural procession during which the governor, who is the chief celebrant as well as dignitaries, residents and tourists adorned different kinds of colourful costumes and marched through designated streets within Port Harcourt metropolis.
The Director-General, Rivers State Tourism Development Agency (RSTDA), Sam Dede said the morning cultural procession was one of the peak moments of CARNIRIV while the peace concert, a rhythm-filled musical session accompanied by spectacular fireworks, brought the carnival to a grand close in the evening. The procession through Aba, Ikwerre and Stadium roads, was lit up by eight live bands in a bid to add to the exhilaration which the parade already promised.
