[The Alausa Blog]: #LagosAt50 Grand Finale celebrations| throwback to the beginning

The Golden Jubilee celebrations of Lagos State birthed the #LagosAt50. The planning committee fora Lagos @ 50 unveiled range of activities for the final celebration of the State’s Golden Jubilee anniversary on March 27,2017.

Habeeb Fasinro, co-chair of the committee said the celebrations would kick off on Saturday, April 8 and end on Saturday, May 27, 2017.

Sadly  we have come to the end of the 50 fantastic days of celebration. The grand finale which coincidentally is the same as Children’s Day, would feature a historic gala night blending good music, Lagos cuisine at its very best, a photo exhibition and the unveiling of a special coffee table book that captures the essence of Lagos through the lens of 50 accomplished photographers.
