Lamu Cultural Festival
I chose to write about this festival because I thought it was a wonderful, unique festival that many people don’t know much about. I really wanted to explore other cultures that I know little about and I think I accomplished just that.
The festival began in 2001 and now takes places over 3 days.
The 3 days of the Lamu Cultural festival consist of various swimming races, dancing, poetry competition, football tournaments, traditional displays, and exhibitions.
One of the goals of the festival is to teach youth about the Lamu culture and to keep their traditions alive for generations to come.
The festival is now considered a major cultural event of the region.
The people of Lamu take great pride in their heritage. They strive to keep their blended culture alive and growing.
