Ready to Join?

For those who would be available on Monday for a festival:

There is a Seed Exchange Festival (TOHUM TAKAS ŞENLİĞİ) at Aşık Veysel Recreational Area in Bornova, organised by İzmir Metropolitan Municipality.

I am posting this one day before, as a last minute event, because the festival itself seems to be a last minute one.
I was at the park a few days ago and there was no sign or publicity of it.
Today I saw that they were finishing some preparations for a festival. I checked the municipality official web site and saw that it was announced today in the afternoon.

I liked the preparations and wanted to post the event for those who are available on Monday and who would like to enjoy it with me.

The festival will begin at 10am and I will be there, but
YOU CAN COME ANYTIME later - and give me a call to meet you at the meeting point.

About the park:
Aşık Veysel Recreational Area (AŞIK VEYSEL REKREASYON ALANI), is a big and beautiful park at Bornova.
There is a creek running through the park. There is a pool with lots of geese.
There is an Ice Sports Hall for Olympic Ice Skating and Ice Hockey, a half olympic swimming pool for underwater rugby, a big amphitheater, walking and cycling paths, a mini football field, basketball and volleyball fields, tennis courts and there is a Seed Exchange Center.

The park is named after famous poet and traditional singer (AŞIK), 'Veysel Şatıroğlu' known with his loyalty to soil, in his poems and lifestyle.

Looking forward to see you.
