Zimbabwe's Victoria Falls Resort Town Hosts New Year Carnival

Victoria Falls

The Jameson Vic Falls Carnival entered its second day in the resort town Tuesday with thousands of local and international revelers hoping to ring in their new year during a star-studded concert that will end the event Wednesday.

Tuesday's event was held at the Victoria Falls Primary School.

Legendary singer Oliver “Tuku” Mtukudzi, Winky D and other famous southern African artistes are set to perform Wednesday.

The third edition of the carnival is the brainchild of Victoria Falls businessmen Blessing Munyenyiwa and Sean Young.

The event was organised by an independent outfit, Seed Experience.

Emmanuel Tirivatyi, who is attending the carnival, said he is impressed with the events so far and expects that the carnival will generate a lot of business for the town.

"The three-day event started with an adventure ride on a steam train to a bush venue for a five-hour party, and today (Tuesday) we had a colour part which will be followed by after parties at three different venues," said Tirivatyi.

The festival ends with a New Year's Eve party featuring a South African's electronic duo, Goldfish Live, ushering the revelers into 2015 on the decks.
