Akwa Ibom Sets Stage For Memorable 2023 Christmas Celebration



The Akwa Ibom State Government is leaving no stone unturned in preparation for a memorable Carol festival this December, the Commissioner for Culture and Tourism, Sir Charles Udoh has said.

Udoh who spoke with journalists in Uyo, on Friday, said that “preparations for the annual Christmas Village (now Christmas Park) and the Akwa Ibom Carols Festival are in top gear.”

Sir Udoh said the leadership direction and hospitality experience of Governor Umo Eno has engendered innovations in the planning of the two events, for the greater pleasure of participants and the interest of Akwa Ibom State.

Speaking on the Christmas Park, the Culture and Tourism Commissioner asserted that the 32-day event “will feature a daily dose of a mixed grill of back-to-back musical events, drama, comedy, games, cultural display, talent shows, outdoor catering and lounging,” adding that it would also “Provide exceptional brand visibility, networking opportunities, and the chance for corporate bodies to showcase their commitments to corporate social responsibility.”

The Christmas Park Grounds, along Udo Udoma Avenue, Sir Udoh said, will have a new look and feel as its layout will have named streets, lanes and directional signs for easy identification of kiosks.

He added that each of the 31 Local Government Areas of the state would feature alongside other key stakeholders like legislators and State Executive Council members and their wives, on each of the 32 days of the event that is to be highlighted by the carol that has become a signature mark for Christmas in Akwa Ibom.
