Visiting Kumasi, Ghana on Good Friday?

I'm traveling to Ghana next month and am planning to be in Kumasi over Good Friday (4/6). It's my first trip to Ghanan and I'm wondering if anyone knows if the markets are still open on the religious holiday or if touring some of the neighboring artisan villages (ie Bonwire) is still reasonable that day? I don't want to plan to be doing something that Friday that will be impossible because the city is shut down for the holiday or all of the taxi and tro-tro drivers are on holiday.
I know it's a huge market and I have trouble believing it would be closed, but I don't want to underestimate the religiosity of the Ghanaian people.

Thanks for any advice.
Kim
