Photos: Governor Fashola Lights Up The Entire Bar Beach Stretch In Lagos

On Monday, December 22nd 2014 at Eko Atlantic City, Lagos Governor Fashola flipped on the switch that lit up the entire stretch of Bar Beach with colourful lights all the way from Bar Beach Bus stop to Ocean View axis, covering about 2 kilometres.This Festival of Lights ceremony also marked the flag-off of 2014 Crossover Festival, a world-class celebration of the close of the calendar year, as well as ushering in the New Year, which is proudly sponsored by Star Lager.


Governor Fashola also commends the sponsors of the event, who according to him, have demonstrated faith and trust by investing in the “dream” expressing confidence that their investments would continue to yield rewards going by what is already taking place on the one and half kilometre stretch, including a lot of enterprise and commerce.

Star, Nigeria’s leading lager, is the title sponsor for the countdown for the second year running.


Continuing Fashola says ‘‘the countdown started as a last few days event; it has become a last one month event. But for me, the work is not finished. What we have done here for the last month of the year must now happen every month and from there on to every day; that is when the story will be complete”,

Lagos Bar Beach – venue of 2014 Lagos Countdown- also houses Star Beer Village, site of world record-breaking Star Bottle Tree, which was made with 8,000 bottles of Star Lager. See more photos below:
