Citizens of Honour
At the end of July, the townhall Tarlungeni organized the third edition of ?Tarlungeni Days?, an event attended each year by an increasing number of folkloric bands, vocal interpreters and Romanian and foreign guests.
For this year edition, mayor Kiss Josef bestowed the title of citizen of honour for some commune?s inhabitants: ?We conferred this honorific title to the eldest inhabitant, to the most longevous family and to those who became important personalities, such the sub- prefect Szakal Andras. He used to be the leader of the Magyar popular dances band ?Borica??.
The organizers had peculiar regard to the three ethnic communities living in Tarlungeni. They prepared a multicultural program, emphasizing each ethnic group?s traditions, attended by the folkloric band of Codlea, the local Magyar bands and the gypsy bands ?Lisandra? and ?Fire Hearts? of Tarlungeni.
Beside the folkloric program, the organizers offered exciting out-door displays: soccer tournament and musical performances of well-known artists from Hungary and Romania.
