August/September in Ghana Features Many Festivals
August and September in Ghana is the time for the annual festivals. A week ago, several senior couples traveled four hours to Ho to witness the Festival in Ho. Pictured above are photos taken by Brother Kradolffer of the Kente Festival in Agotime, Ghana as well as a shot in Elmira.
The chiefs and people of Agotime traditional area, a few kilometres east of Ho, who are called Ga-Adanbges, celebrate their annual Kente festivals in August every year. The Agotime people introduced the art of Kente weaving to Ghana and mark this event with a colorful festival culminating in a parade of chiefs and subjects as well as various types of Kente cloth put on display.
