The 12-hours carnival, consisting of Parade of Colours and Music, is packaged by the Lagos State Government in collaboration with HEAT Entertainment outfit, as a private sector initiative expected to set the tone for the Christmas and New Year celebration.

In a statement, the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Mr. Fola Adeyemi stated that this year's Lagos Street Party, which has now been rebranded and transformed into Street Carnival, is packaged to provide fun and entertainment for the entire family, as well as set the stage for the One Lagos Fiesta which is to come up in all the five divisions of the state at a later date in December.

He said the carnival would witness a parade of colours by representatives of all the 57 Local Government Councils and Council Development Areas and the organised private sector participation from Lagos Island and other parts of the state.

The carnival, according to him, would provide fun and entertainment to the family, and would have Kiddies section with variety of over 18 games to take care of their needs, while the adult section would be thrilled with carnival procession and musical performance by “A” list Artistes like Olamide, Terry G, Saheed Osupa, Li Kesh,, 9ice, Humble smith, Salawa Abeni, MC Arole, Malaika, Olu Maintain, YCee, Reminisce and Big Shef.

Adeyemi said the entire stretch of the Oba Akran Avenue would be closed to vehicular traffic from Ikeja under bridge to Sapara Street and all adjoining roads.

He, however, said that alternative routes have been provided through Ile Zik to connect Ikeja, while motorists can also navigate through Akani Doherty through Ladipo Oluwole, Adeniyi Jones and Aromire Road to connect Obafemi Awolowo Way.

“The entire Ikeja axis and adjoining roads would be strategically manned by traffic managers for seamless flow of traffic.

"Motorists are therefore advised to avoid these roads and, if need be, follow directional signs and obey traffic officials along this route,” he said.

He also said that designated car packs have also been provided at Ikeja Local Government secretariat, Old Secretariat Compound, Ikeja, Women Development Centre, Agege and Education District I compound.

“Lagosians can be rest assured of maximum security which is to be provided by a combined team of the Nigeria Police, Nigerian Army, Civil Defense, State Security Service who are all set to maintain law and order.

“Lagosians are encouraged to troop out in large numbers and take advantage of this world class event provided by the Lagos State Government, to catch fun and entertainment preparatory to the One Lagos Fiesta, which is to come up for eight days across five venues in all the divisions of the state,” he said.
