The folks of Akropong-Akuapim, Aburi, Larteh and Mamfi within the Eastern Region have commemorated the Odwira competition.

The occasion historically falls around the harvest season, when food is in plentiful provide and folks categorical thanks to their ancestors.

Since it’s a yam competition, “feeding the ancestors” is a method through which thankfulness for the crop is especially proven.

Myjoyonline.com‘s photojournalist, Sammy Moore, was at this year’s celebration and captured these moments.
