December 27, 2018 - NVU Karampana, in cooperation with the co-organizer the Tourist Organization Kotor, and under the sponsorships of the Kotor Municipality, organizes a series of events within the project "From Christmas to Christmas" from December 23rd to January 8th, 2019.
"This year we are presenting a rich program of twelve manifestations and events that will be organized in our city," said the NGO "Karampana". The event began with the New Year's concert by Kotor City Music, and it continued on Christmas Eve on December 24th, when “priganice” were served in front of the city's main gate to all citizens and guests.
Friday, December 28th is reserved for the cutest and the youngest. At 10:00 am, the Children's New Year Bazaar will be held in front of the main city doors, where the children from the kindergarten and Kotor schools will present the works that they prepared with their teachers. In case of rain, the location for the bazaar will be the Shopping Center "Kamelija". On the same day in the Church of St. The Ghost at 8 p.m. there will be a concert by the quartet "Lords of the Strings".
Saturday, December 29th is the New Year's Bazaar of Crafts at the Riva promenade at 10 a.m. The big New Year's Tombola will be organized on the same day in front of the city tavern "Dojmi" at 11 am, and the organizers have provided valuable prizes for all participants. In case of bad weather for both events, the host will be SC Kamelija.
At the Piazza from 8 p.m., visitors will hear the famous tones and hits “Anđele moj” and “Aj ća volin’ te” by klapa "Kampanel". An alternative location in case of bad weather will be JU Cultural Center "Nikola Đurković" at the same hours.
Santa Claus and his elves have prepared a variety of surprises, which the youngest must not miss. The students of the Vida Matjan Music School will participate in the reception for the children. They will also have the opportunity to enjoy an interactive show titled "Let's Love - This is the Year of Love."
"Like every year, the unavoidable part of the Children’s New Year's program is the distribution of New Year's packages, which Kotor’s Santa Claus will distribute for all the present children," Karampana.
For children who, due to health problems, cannot attend the reception, NGO Karampana has organized the delivery of the New Year's packages at 12 pm at the Kotor General Hospital. It is a continuation of the "Fairytale for Health" action which started in 2015 as part of the project "From Christmas to Christmas."
The Children’s New Year will be followed by a musical happening entitled "Kotor- City of Good Music." The audience will be entertained by Who See, Niggor & Jelena Kženegra.
"The beginning of the New Year will be marked on January 3, 2019, under the title “Experience the Hundred,” where we will organize a special music program and the New Year's tombola with various prizes," said Karampana.
The Christmas Concert of the Serbian Singing Society "Jedinstvo" is scheduled for the 4 January in the church of St. Nicholas at 6 pm.
"Karampana" invites citizens and guests of Kotor to join the event announced for 5 January. "A humanitarian evening is dedicated to all Kotor originals, and all the proceeds from the sale of sausages and wine will be intended for the purchase of new instruments for Kotor City Music," the organizers said.
As for the Catholic Christmas Eve, Kotor will prepare “priganice” to celebrate the Orthodox Christmas Eve, which will be served in front of the central city gates on January 6 at 10 am.
The sixth “From Christmas to Christmas" manifestation ends on January 8th with the gastronomic specialities of Kotor hosts, which will be presented within the framework of the "Papalada ala maka."
"Thanks to the support we received, without which this project could not be so successful, we owe the first place to Luštica Bay, which already traditionally helps the project “From Christmas to Christmas.” Also, thanks for the support and infrastructure assistance of the Municipality of Kotor, La Mia Casa from Podgorica and our colleagues by enthusiasm - Ocean Lava Montenegro," said Karampan with the invitation to attend the programs and the message “the New Year's Magic can begin."
