The Tulip festival is being organised by the Tepebasi Culture and Nature Protection Society.
It will start on Saturday March 16th and will continue on Sunday. This is the ninth tulip festival and its aim is to promote the rare Yorgoz Tulip which is only found in Cyprus.
Both the current President Eroglu, and ex-President Talat will attend the opening ceremonies. There will be various organised walks, races and modern and Latin dance competitions. At 4pm the SOS group will present a two hour concert. They will be followed by other groups.
