Tagged “Africa’s Biggest Street Party”, the carnival turns the Nigerian bumper-to-bumper traffic into roads filled with people celebrating for weeks.

Nigeria's Calabar Carnival festival is one of those events that sees Africa’s biggest country bustling with excitement.

Dancers in colorful costumes resembling those of Brazil’s Carnival shimmy and shake their way through the streets.

Musicians express and show off their best tunes.

The carnival was created as part of the vision of making Nigeria an attractive tourist destination.
