On this fine occasion, song, dance, food, entertainment, merry making, shopping, culture and diversity are all enjoyed right in middle of this great metropolis. It’s a much anticipated moment for citizens to share and learn while acting as an economic engine for organisations to grow, network and prosper. It provides a platform to celebrate the many things that set Kampala apart from other cities.
