“We have received at Targoviste the largest support so far for organizing this type of event. The work of the Mayor, Ciprian Prisacaru, of Alina Dumbrava- the European Majorettes Championship Director, 16th Edition and of the majorettes team from Targoviste is very high.”
Beyond all these, beyond being an international sports competition, The European Majorettes Championship will also represent a great event for the tourism promotion of Targoviste City. In addition, according to European Majorettes Association President, the 1 600 participants will spend in Targoviste 500 000 Euro, which means a lot for the city.
“In these four days we will be visited by a large number of persons and, thank God, Targoviste has to offer them a lot and we will do our best for our guests to feel good and leave with a beautiful impression,” said Ciprian Prisacaru-Interim Mayor of the city. The European Majorettes Association President completed soon after, saying that he is no longer scared of Dracula.
Definitely after the “Dracula-Return” show, played especially at the Royal Court, in this evening, 12 September, for the European Majorettes Championship participants, even Dracula myth will be vanished.
