This weekend, the annual Tbilisoba took place throughout Tbilisi to celebrate the diversity and the history of the capital city of Georgia. Once again, the event attracted thousands of attendees.
To the rhythm of music, everyone was able to enjoy traditional dances, street food, drinks, and many activities at various locations throughout the capital. It was the best opportunity to gather with family, friends and to stroll the city, discovering many activities and special treats on offer by restaurants, bars, museums and more.
When night fell, many watched Georgia playing against Fiji during the rugby game on large screens set up at different public locations, such as the G. Leonidze park. Even though Georgia did not win, the game was undoubtedly thrilling.
The first day of Tbilisoba was closed by Tbilisi’s mayoral presentation of the honorary citizens from a list composed of artists, doctors and academics who were rewarded their titles at the Palace of State Ceremonies. Then there was a gala concert.
Mayor Kakha Kaladze, when asked what he wanted for the city during Tbilisoba, wished for “First, peace, as peace really has no alternative, and also economic development and strengthening, so that people living in this country, in our city, are happy.”
The weekend was a real success. First marked in 1979, Tbilisoba quickly became a tradition which is sure to continue.
Do not worry if you missed it or already miss it, Tbilisoba will be held again next year, during the month of October.
