    Background: THOUSANDS OF GHANIANS FLOCKED TO THE ATTRACTIVE LABADI PLEASURE BEACH NEAR ACCRA DURING THE THREE-DAY NATIONAL HOLIDAYS MARKING THE ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS OF THE OVERTHROW OF FORMER PRESIDENT KWAME NKRUMAH.

    THE FESTIVITIES ON THE BEACH AT LABADI WERE THE CULMINATION OF THE CELEBRATIONS IN THE ACCRA DISTRICT. BUT ALL OVER THE COUNTRY THERE WERE FESTIVITIES TO MARK THE ANNIVERSARY.

    LABADI BEACH BECAME A VAST DANCE FLOOR FOR A WHILE, AND WHEN THE PARTICIPANTS WERE EXHAUSTED THEY REVIVED THEMSELVES EITHER WITH COOL DRINKS OR AN EVEN COOLER SWIM IN THE SEA.
