The concert of the regional star Zdravko Čolić on Friday evening at the plateau in front of Hotel Igalo will open the Jubilee 52. Mimosa festival, as confirmed by the organizers at today's press conference.
We remind that we thought that the expected spectacle, in case of heavy rain, would take place at the Igalo Sports Center, which has been discarded as an option.
"Due to technical and security reasons, it is not feasible to accommodate a large number of people in this facility, and the interest for Čolić's concert is enormous," said the Vice-President Miloš Konjević
During the 50 days of the festival, 60 different programs will take place: from folk festivals to the theater, art, literary and other programs. Director of Herceg Novi Fest, Gordana Porobic Krcunovic, said that Herceg Novi would be "a European festival stage" during that period. Secretary for Social Activities and Sports, Darko Klasić announced the sports program within Mimosa Festival, which will have 15 different events from the Coup of sports fishermen to Race of “karića”.
To the remarks that the program, defined late and still not accurate, overwhelming and without a clear concept, the Festival Director said that they adhere to the original concept from the 70s.
It remains to be seen, for example, how many visitors outside of Herceg Novi will be motivated to visit the Mimosa Festival because of the Days of Norway, Poland, Italy and some other countries or for a theater show.
The representatives of the Directorate have announced that the jubilee celebration of the mimosa is expecting a record number of visitors, after all, that they have done in recent months in promoting this unique winter event. Director of Tourist Organization, Pavle Obradović pointed out that a lot of marketing and advertising of the Mimosa Festival in the region was done. He is confident that the hotels and private accommodations will be fully booked. The excellent promotion, as stated from the Festival's Directorate, also contributed the Mimosa Festival Caravan, which visited 17 cities in five countries. Good acquaintances claim that the effect would surely be better if the Caravan was organized at least a month or two before the beginning of the Festival.
