We arrived on location on 24 December. The atmosphere was lively, full of excitement.
The stadium was well decorated with Christmas lights, and giant billboards all over the stadium. The event was officially flagged of by executive chairman of Oron, in the person of Hon. Orman Esin with a exhilarating praise session, followed by opening speech/prophetic declarations which threw the crowd of people that were present that night into confusion. With many saying " is Orman Esin one of the prophets?" because he addressed Oro nation not as their chairman, but as their clergy.

It was one unforgettable night. 25th night was the grand finale of choral competition, where the defending champions the Apostolic Church Eyo Oro reclaim the trophy, beating the runners up, Methodist Church Eyo Oro with 260 points. Immediately after the competition was music performances, and comedy show. The carnival continues till 31st December.
