Festival Description

The Ila Oso Festival begins in the second week of December and ends a few days before Christmas. It is a special time in Uzuakoli, Abia State, a trooping of the colors when every age group from the youngest to the oldest march past in proud displays of artistic talents and other achievements. The event is highly competitive among the different age groups and the five villages that make up the town of Uzuakoli. Each village has one day during which its age groups march and dance through each of the five villages. On the last day of the ceremonies all the five villages meet in the main square in a colorful display of rivalry and camaraderie between villages and between age groups.
