Entertainment of Wednesday, 20 April 2011
All is set for this year’s paragliding festival, at Kwahu Atibie. This year’s event promises to be extra exciting, with about 32 pilots from seven countries including Germany, USA, Switzerland, and South Africa.
A host of participants from as far as the Northern Region are also expected to be present. This 6th edition also has the added touch of a durbar of chiefs from the Kwahu Traditional area which would be held on Saturday, April 23rd.
The opening ceremony, which would be performed by the Tourism Minister, Hon. Akua Sena Dansua is on Friday, April 22. The show ends on Monday, 25th April, 2011.
The Ministry of Tourism and its agencies, especially the Ghana Tourist Board, entreat Ghanaians to cultivate the habit of taking a vacation by partaking in the celebrations.
We however wish to appeal to every visitor to the event to exercise the highest levels of morality, decency, and moderation in all activities they embark on in the area during the period. We also appeal to all road users to drive with care, avoid over speeding and unnecessary overtaking, avoid drink-driving, and adhere to road traffic regulations.
For those who cannot be at Kwahu, we encourage you to find a tourist attraction elsewhere to relax and enjoy our rich natural and cultural heritage sites.Have a happy Easter!!!!
