The people of Ngleshie over the weekend marked their Homowo festival with a display of culture and style.

To make this year’s Ngleshie Alata Lafaa Homowo a talk-of-the-town occasion, the traditional leaders organised a first-of-it’s kind carnival across the streets of Weija.

Dubbed the Peace Carnival walk, the colourful display was organised by the newly installed Development queen mother, Naa Korkoi I who has arts and culture as her specialty.

In an interview with Adom News, she revealed her subjects were trained on how to assemble the carnival outfits among other things to aid in a smooth exercise.

To the queen mother, culture is the essence of kinship, and as such there was the need to represent the tribe in the most mind-boggling way.

The carnival saw some tribespersons, both males and females don custom-made wear solely made from items used in the preparation of the cultural delicacies.

Palm fruits, branches, thorns, maize husks, pots, calabashes and woven baskets were employed to make the wears.

Foreigners were also invited to participate and observe the beautiful culture of the Gas.

The carnival came ahead of the kpokpoi festival on Saturday and all-white jams on Sunday to signify peace and long life.
