One of the most important national days in Turkey is here: the Commemoration of Atatürk, Youth and Sports Day. The great leader Mustafa Kemal Atatürk has continually emphasized the role of the youth and children, who are the future of the Republic of Turkey.
To mark the day, we’re also getting an extra day off on Friday meaning it’s going to be a festive day and one big, weekend-long party. The festivities are expected to include no less than one procession, an official parade and free concerts and dancing Friday May 19 to Sunday May 21.
Marmaris is filled with festive events and things you will enjoy for free over the weekend. If you do want to have a good time there’s plenty going on in Marmaris. Make sure you check timings for the events and things to do in Marmaris. Then start texting your friends and making plans. It’s not too late to have a weekend with a bang.
You’ll no doubt notice Marmaris is looking slightly different over this weekend. Marmaris streets are filled with national flags and huge portraits of Atatürk. Red and white balloons will hang out from cafes and restaurants, Turkish flags and flower beds and people wearing red and white will start to appear on May 19th.
