The 9th “International Tatlisu Carob Festival's program which will take place between 4-7 September was introduced by the Turkish Cypriot Municipalities Union at a press conference today.

According to the organizers the Festival will be opened by Turkish Cypriot President Dervis Eroglu

Tatlisu Mayor Ahmet Hayri Orcan stated that the festival’s aim was to promote the value of carob and raise the living standards of the local people economically, socially and culturally.

Orcan said: “There are four modern carob syrup production factories in north Cyprus which supplies to the increasing demand and contributes to the island’s economy through exports. At the current stage the importance of these festivals in promoting products can be seen. I think that these festivals should be supported.”

“Pesticides should be supplied”

Orcan expressed the carob producer’s problems, noting that the aspect that destroys the carob trees the most is that there is a late prevention of mice. He stated that he wants the Agriculture and Energy ministry to supply pesticides for the mice.

Orcan continued as the following:

“This year we are face to face with another problem. Because the pesticides were sprayed rather late most of the products have been destroyed by moths and this has led to serious quality loss in the products.

With our narrow budget and the contribution of out sponsors we believe that this year we will do our best. Besides a variety of stalls, there will also be local products.”

“The festival's program”

Besides local performers like Grup SOS and Orge Volkan, there will be performers from Turkey such as Murat Basaran and Ankarali Yasemin. The first concert will be on the 4th September Thursday at 21.30 by Grup SOS.

Orge Volkan and Murat Basaran concerts will be on the 7th of September Sunday at 21.00

‘Yetenek Sizsiniz,’ (Turkey's Got a Talent) finalist illusionist Enver Ertas, Acrobats Workout Turkey and Fire Strom will perform their shows.

Throughout the festival a children’s fete, fashion show, stork legged long men, Judo-wrestle and backgammon tournament will also take place.
