 The Tema Development Corpora­tion (TDC) in collaboration with Gh Schools has launched the maiden edition of ‘DecemberFest’ in Accra.

Dubbed ‘Fostering Unity through Culture and Tourism’, the three-day event slated for December 1 – 3, is geared towards the promotion of cul­ture, synergy and tourism in Ghana.

The event set for T-Havana in Tema, will kick-off with a float on the first day, followed by a grand durbar of chiefs with display of food and drinks.

It will be climaxed with a fashion show night, cooking competition and a family day.

Speaking at the launch, the Tema Metro Director of Culture and Tourism, Miss Sandra Boison said the partnership would fuse creativ­ity, innovation and shared vision of strengthening Ghana’s culture.

She said, the event would provide a platform to promote and preserve local fashion and cultural heritage.

Miss Boison added that, “it will bring people from far and near and contribute to the economic develop­ment of arts and creativity.”

The Rector for Gh Schools, Leslie Listowel Addo said they were com­mitted to organising the event annu­ally with the aim of reaching out to the diaspora.

Mr Addo invited vendors and indi­viduals to come on board and show­case their products and services.
