Background: A sports and dance festival in the humorous vein in honour of the new Lord Mayor was recently filmed at Leopoldville. Mayors came from all over Belgium and the Belgian Congo to join their new colleague, M. Depi in the celebrations.
The programme of the day, organized by a committee headed by M. Masikini, included wheelbarrow and sack races, scout games and traditional local dances performed by Congo youth groups, Girl guides and Red Cross members, and a girls' football match.
