So there is plenty of entertainment to choose from and I am sure it is going to be a very busy time for the Lapta Belediyesi and especially Berke Ertopaloğlu who has been participating in many of the events as well as organising them with his band of helpers and after the 6th Lapta Tourism Festival is all done and dusted for this year he will be entitled to a well earned rest. Well done Berke and your team.
We all look forward to the 7th Lapta Tourism Festival next year.
