This year for Nigerians 56th Independence day we headed to New York for the annual parade and festival they have on second avenue in Manhattan .
We had never been before so we were not sure what to expect. But once we saw all the people dressed in green and white or waving Naija flags my sister and I knew we were in the right place.
As Nigerian Americans living in America, we felt privileged and beyond joyous to be able to shut down 54th street to 44th Street with Naija Pride.
Nigerians are a people of much pride, and it felt so good to share such pride with fellow Nigerians and Nigerian-Americans on our Independence day. One of the greatest things about America is that is allows immigrants and children of immigrants, such as our selves, to celebrate our culture.
If you are of Nigerian decent or someone who loves to experience the Nigerian culture be sure to visit the Nigerian Independence Day Parade one time in your life, you will never forget it.
HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY WEEKEND NAIJA !
