Karaman marks 10th midsummer party tomorrow

Karaman residents will hold their annual midsummer party tomorrow, where they will celebrate the 10th anniversary of the event.

The open-air festivities will take place in the village’s church square with music provided by Werner’s Steam Machine and food and drinks laid on by local caterers.

Andy King, who lives in the village and is also a member of the Civil Emergency Service Volunteers (CESV), will hold a raffle to raise funds to buy a defibrillator for the community.

Jean Clark, one of the organisers, said: “We expect everyone to come and join as it is a social event for the community. Everyone is welcome to bring along friends to meet the neighbourhood.

“A lot of dancing is also expected to happen as our entertainer will be providing great music.”

Elsewhere models will ride into Doğancı on a combine harvester as part of a show by fashion designer Abdullah Öztoprak at the closing night of the village’s Festival of Art and Culture.

Meanwhile preparations for the 38th Güzelyurt Orange Festival are under way as a line up of top Turkish acts was announced. The annual festival, which starts on Friday and runs to July 12, will include live concerts from Murat Kekilli, Gökhan Türkmen and group Pinhani, among others. A full program of activities is due to be released this week.
