C-River Banks On Innovative Plans To Boost 2024 Calabar Carnival


BY UBON EKANEM, CALABAR – The Cross River State Carnival Commission (CRSCC) is banking on creative innovations with eco-tourism strategic plans to boost the State carnival calendar’s value chain going forward.

Unveiling its action plan for the year 2024, the Commission’s  Executive Secretary, Evangelist Austin Cobham said for the largest street party in Africa to sustain its attractiveness and awe-inspiring reputation, it has become imperative to introduce fresh and captivating packages that would attract tourists across the globe to the State.

Evangelist Cobham said with the State so naturally blessed with historical and breathtaking tourist sites, the need has arisen to put in place new packages that would leave indelible marks in the minds of tourists.

He said as part of the tourism package, the State government is planning to establish Swallow Birds City in Boki Local Government Area, noting that the touching discovery is that Swallow Birds migrate from far away Europe during winter to congregate at the Boki mountains and later find their way back to Europe during summer.

According to him, such an important tourist attraction is not an opportunity that should be taken lightly as the Swallow Bird City would add a rare and special angle to the State Tourism Calendar.

On the importance of re-strategizing by decentralizing the hosting of the yearly Calabar carnival, Evangelist Cobham said arrangements have been concluded to stage the crowd-pulling showpiece at Ogoja in the northern senatorial district on October 27, while Ikom in the central senatorial district will take its turn on November 24, 2024.
