Thursday, May 25th 2017, was the first day of the Annual Africa Day festival which is held at the Wandsbek Markt Platz and it was fantastic.
The venue was parked, people walked in and out of the venue which is plastered with different tents full of African culture, food, drinks, and entertainment.
Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlingsd, wife to former president of Ghana, Jerry John Rawlings, graced the occassion with a speech encouraging Africans to mimic the positive characters of their German counterparts.
Kids were all over the place jumping around and having fun. Although the stage was not blessed by a lot of artists, the atmosphere was full of merriment and enjoyment.
It is always good to see people of different colours and cultures come together as one people.
The festival continues until Sunday, May 26th, 2017. If you are in Hamburg, endeavour to stop by Wandsbek Markt and join in on the celebration.
