The wrestling matches are her favourite part of the festival. THis has to do with the circumstances of her marriage to Okonkwo. She fell in love with Okonkwo during the opening match of the book, when he threw the Cat. She always fancied Okonkwo but he was too poor to pay the bride price. After the match she ran away from her husband and eloped with Okonkwo. No Okonkwo doesn't turn out to be prince charming but Ekwefi likes that memory.
