The children’s carnival segment of Carnival Calabar held on Wednesday as the children held revellers spellbound with different dance performances showcasing the rich cultural heritage of Cross River.

The children in their numbers performed radiating an aura of sweetness, in line with the theme for the carnival, “Season of Sweetness”.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that no fewer than seven bands performed during the Children Carnival at the UJ Esuene Stadium, in Calabar.

The state government had in 2015 announced the temporal suspension of the Children Carnival which usually precedes the main festival.

The performances were unique as local music cutting across different languages were engaged in the course of the carnival.

The Bayside Band, who tagged their performance, “Circus of Happiness”, performed with Onyeka Onwenu’s music, “One Love”.

Also, Passion 4, the band with the most wins in the previous editions of the carnival exhibited heights of creativity with members during their parade using their bodies to create drums, guitars and keyboards.

They showcased the need for hardwork to become scholars and successful individuals.
Other bands like Masta Blasta, Freedom and Diamond also had their parade.
