– Confirms New Year’s Day Festival 2012 in Marmaris, Turkey
12/13/2011 can confirm that the 2012 New Year’s Day Festival will take place in Marmaris, Turkey.

Online PR News – 13-December-2011 – – This traditional event is always a grand celebration for both locals and visitors alike with street parties, firework displays and live music from local bands to usher in the New Year with the dynamic energy for which the Turks are famous.

As Turkey has a foot in both east and west camps so too does the flavour of Turkish festivity. East and west happily meet in a flurry of all-night parties with a distinctive eastern appeal. New Year’s Day, or Yibasi, is typically celebrated on 1st January but celebrations begin the day before on New Year’s Eve, 31st December and continue well into New Year’s Day and frequently beyond.

Marmaris New Year celebrations are expected to be attended by local dignitaries, government officials and business people who sponsor the event annually. There will be a traditional opening of the celebrations by the time-honoured countdown to midnight. There is a free firework display held in the centre of Marmaris and various street parties are held throughout the city. These parties have large numbers of attendees and are always well-organised events.

All outdoor New Year Festival events in Marmaris are free to attend and consequently are extremely well attended. These events have a fiesta feel and are enjoyed by old and young alike.

Visitors staying in hotels in Marmaris City Centre will delight in the buzz of New Year celebrations but demand for hotel rooms is expected to be high so early booking is recommended. Many hotels also host special New Year programmes for visitors and guests.

Although 31st December, New Year’s Eve, is not an official holiday in Turkey, many workers do have a half-day off so the city will be especially busy during this time as people begin to enter into the spirit of New Year celebrations. Shops, schools and offices may also close earlier than usual.
