The quiet Calabar Botanical garden awoke to the chats and screams of kids on the 26th of December which is globally recognized as Boxing day. But for the kids in Cross River state, this date is as significant if not almost as important as the Children’s day celebration, because it is the one- day they get to exclusively enjoy the Calabar Festival not as spectators but active participants in the state tourism sector via the Children’s Carnival.

The kids, who came in their numbers accompanied by parents and chaperons, performed the street possession under the umbrella of the five carnival bands comprising Seagulls, Master Blaster, Passion 4 and Freedom as well as the Bayside band.
After a fun- filled 5KM dance party, came the time of judgment which was announced by the Executive Secretary, Carnival Commission, Mrs. Elenda Dokubo, who made known the result of the competition. In third place was the Passion 4 band winning N300,000.00, second place was the Master Blaster with N500.000.00 while the Seagull Band stood tall in first place was the Band of the year (Junior Category) carting away the star prize of One million Naira cash and this excited the kids ridiculously!
