The grand durbar to round off this year's Odwira festival at Larteh Akuapim in the Eastern Region was an extremely colourful affair.
MTN sponsored the festival as part of its Culturefest 2013 programme and citizens from the town as well as the many guests turned out in elegance at the durbar ground. The women, both royalty and ordinary folks, looked their best for the festive event.
Activities undertaken during the festival included a clean-up exercise; inter-school quiz for junior high schools; a community health walk and health screening and a fun day of poetry, indoor games and music for young people.
Others were community football gala; durbar and street carnival and a non-denominational thanksgiving service.
As part of its sponsorship package for the festival, MTN donated Gh¢3,000.00 to the Larteh Traditional Council. The telecoms company also gave MTN airtime, a drink hamper and an assortment of MTN souvenirs.
The theme for the festival was 'Education For The Youth.'
