Ndiigbo in New England have declared the weekend of August 7-8 Igbo weekend in New England. This year’s event is building upon the widely successful Igbo Day of 2014 when different Igbo organizations came together to showcase aspects of their culture. The 2015 event will start on Friday August 7 with a gala night at the International Assemblies of God Church Hall, Randolph. The next day, Saturday August 8, the day-time event will kick off with a cultural parade down Randolph Main Street and culminating at the Carlino Way Park with a variety of cultural displays. A number of communities in New England have started preparation for their participation in the event. Among them is the Enugu State Association of New England whose President, Maazi David Aduba has vowed that his organization will steal the show this year.
Speaking about the event, the Chairman of the Organizing Committee, Ozo Bonny Chibueze (Ozo Akukalia na Nise) stated that this year’s event will be bigger and better than the previous year’s.
