Rita Dominic to light Christmas tree for people of Calabar!
Cross River State citizens in Nigeria are very proud people. They take pride in their rich cultural traditions and hold high their own. So for those who hail from the area and succeed in various aspects of life, returning back to their roots is almost customary.
Each year, there is a month long Calabar festival that takes place which has gradually become a world class event synonymous to the London or Rio carnival.
The Calabar Carnival attracts tourists from all over the world who throng the city for the occasion and the Christmas tree-lighting ceremony culminates highlights the peak of the festivities which Rita Dominic has been chosen to light up for this year.
The tree-lighting ceremony will be followed by the Paradise City Walk against HIV/AIDS the next day.
