Preparations are well underway for the 56th Wine Festival that will take place in the southern coastal town of Limassol on August 31 to September 10, with the participation of the town`s four biggest wineries, smaller wineries and kiosks with traditional products and local food.

Limassol Mayor Nikos Nikolaides invited everyone to attend the Festival. He was speaking at a ceremony during which the statue of a man wearing the traditional Cypriot men`s garment (the vraka) was put in its place, at the entrance of the Municipal Garden.

In his statement Nikolaides said that the Festival promotes local tradition but also respects current trends. He referred to the rich cultural programme to be presented during the festival.

He said buses have been assigned to ferry tourists and other visitors from other towns to Limassol for the festival.
 
The Mayor noted that various committees of citizens have been set up to submit proposals with a view to upgrade cultural events taking place in the town, such as the Wine Festival and the Carnival.
