04 September 2016

The Minister of Tourism advisor, Zhivko Tabakov, took part in the official ceremony to unveil the 6th edition of the Fish Festival in Tsarevo. The event took place on September 4 at Michurin port, continuing until nightfall. He read a welcoming address on behalf of the Minister of Tourism, Nikolina Angelkova, expressing hopes that the celebration of this festival will again gather hundreds of tourists region-wide with its rich and diverse agenda.

The festival was first held six years ago. The idea is to make the culinary competition into a traditional one at each summer’s end, with locals and visitors to the town taking part in a competition to prepare fish delicacies.

According to Municipality data, this year’s visitors to the event were 6 000. The event commenced with an under-water fishing regatta and a music fiesta. The newly established traditional meeting of locals and tourists for the first time featured a bicycle tour.

The event’s agenda was joined by Emo Cholakov and other celebrities, with Uti Bachvarov preparing, in line with the tradition, Tsarevo-style mussels with rice for the thousands of guests. Musicians from Bulgaria Has Talent, Vivo Montana, the rock legends BTR, Raffy and Rewind provided good mood for everyone.
