The Lagos State Government Monday announced Saturday, May 2, 2015, as the new date for the 2015 Lagos Carnival.

 Commissioner for Tourism and Inter-governmental Affairs, Mr. Disun Holloway, said the change from the traditional Easter Monday was consequent upon the shift in the date of the nation’s general elections which was concluded Saturday April 11, 2015 nationwide.

He further noted that the change of date was approved by the State Governor, Mr. Babatunde Fashola, SAN, following “the alteration in the electoral calendar.”

Last Sunday, the Lagos Boat Regatta, which traditionally precedes the Carnival, was held with pump and pageantry at the usual Oyinkan Abayomi Drive, Ikoyi, venue of the festival.

Both the Boat Regatta and the Carnival are part of the Lagos Black Heritage Festival.
