An activity packed weekend looms over many individuals in Lagos. Families and friend groups are getting ready for one of the busiest weekends in the year: Easter Weekend. Easter is the one time of year that has a way of bringing family and friends together in celebration. For practicing Christians, it’s a commemoration of the crucifixion and resurrection of our dear Lord, Jesus Christ and for everyone else, it’s a long weekend that poses the opportunity to party at every corner.

If you’re really on it, you probably already have your weekend planned by the hour. If you are still at a loss for what to do with all the free time so generously given, I’d like to let you know that I’ve got you covered.

Here’s a list of activities and specials you can look into to get your holiday groove on:
