“Welcome — Ob’okhian!” That was the greeting that hundreds of Nigerians heard as they descended upon Eisenhower Park in Long Island on Saturday, July 6. Members of the Edo Organization of New York, the Bini Club of New York and groups out of Benin participated in the 20th annual barbecue.

Organizers included Osahon Obadiaru and Ogieva Obadiaru, who hosted the family event. Members of the organizations provided food and drinks for the free event set in the beautiful park. Nigerians from all over the East Coast came with family and friends to eat and interact with each other. As usual, there were unlimited things to do at the barbecue. It was a great experience for everyone.
