University of Cape Coast (Ghana) UCC@60 Float draws massive crowd

Management, staff and students of University of Cape Coast (UCC) defied the scorching sun to embark on a three-hour mega street float as part of the 60th anniversary celebration of the University.

Clad in UCC@60 paraphernalia and accompanied by loud music blasting through speakers mounted on fully-loaded UCC@60 branded articulated trucks as well as brass band music, the mammoth crowd began the float from Victoria Park in the central business district of Cape Coast through some principal streets and ended at the Club House of the University.

The ecstasy surrounding the float was contagious such that school children, the aged and even sellers halted their activities to catch a glimpse of management, staff and students, which further increased the level of excitement.
