Chez Nous Beach Bar will be the place to be this Saturday as Sierra Leone celebrates the 47th independence anniversary. It is the fourth annual bonfire, barbeque and dance party at the sea-side organized by the John Akar Independence Trust. The John Akar Independence Trust is a charitable organization that raises money to support the preservation of Sierra Leone’s historical relics and monuments.
This year’s bonfire and barbeque party on the 26th of April is also supported by the Sierra Leone Brewery limited.
The bonfire and barbeque party attracts Freetown’s movers and shakers from all walks of life. “It is the show for the city’s who is who”; says its organizers.
A key attraction at the party is the “bubu” cultural dance round a huge bonfire on the beach. For many regulars at the show the barbeque and buffet are one of the finest on offer in Sierra Leone.
The dancing is hectic as music of yester years rule the night. According sources in the John Akar Independence Trust, tickets to this year’s party will not be sold in advance.
Tickets will only be sold at the gate. In a new dimension the Masters of Ceremonies at this year’s party are coming from the Sierra Leonean community oversea
