Following the massive success of Street Life Festivals of May and October 2007 with more than 4,000 people taking part, Street Life Festival 2009 will take place after public demand!
On Saturday 2 May 09, Saripolou and Athenon Streets will host for once more the most creative and interactive event of Limassol. Graffiti, juggling, skateboarding, body painting, street massaging and live music are some of the activities thousands of people will enjoy in the city centre.
Street Life has more than one reason to celebrate this year, especially the opening of the Cyprus University of Technology right in the heart of Limassol. It is a reason to celebrate because first of all we have all the students taking part this year.
The organizers, the famous shop Gifts and Gadgets and the communication agency Consulo, promise a day full of creative and educational activities for all ages from 0 to 100 years old! The philosophy is to revive the city centre and its streets and live the beauty of the historical centre of Limassol converting the walls into a huge canvas.
