Nigerian Independence Day Parade and Festival

October 31, 2012

NYC October 6th 2012

Nigerians in the USA celebrated 52 years of independency of their motherland with a parade in the New York streets and a festival that ran at the DagHammaskjold Plaza later that night. Music, cultural dancing and food came aplenty with strong political and religious undertones considering the message of the speeches before the parade began. With pride and a great sound and sense of fun the parade started and I was present to report the pre-parade preparations shot at Second Ave and 54th  Street E Manhattan, NYC.
