Boat Regatta Festival

Boat Regatta Festival

Boat regatta is associated with the people of Ilaje, Ijaw Apoi and Ijaw Arogbo in Ilaje and Ese-Odo Local Government Areas of the State. The various forms of regatta include ritual, social war and boat racing. It could be held at any time of the year, but most appropriate when water volume reduces between November and December when most social occasions are held.

Boat Regatta involves a flamboyant decoration of boat or canoes in different traditional costumes with illuminating colours. Participants display their mastery for water. It is a performance with beautiful colours, music, dance step, circus and acrobatic display.
