DECORATION OF THE TOWN DURING THE FESTIVAL
1223 flower saplings were planted for the Pivo in cvetje Laško festival. Members of the Horticultural Society tried to choose the flowers according to modern trends, but the usual hot temperatures during the festival also need to be considered when choosing suitable flowers. This was also the case this year.
Like every year, visitors arriving by train will be welcomed by a special arrangement at the Laško train station, including a decorated historic locomotive. Traditionally, flowers will also be presented in the middle of the roundabout at the main bus station, and also on the lawn in front of the Spar store and the weather house.
For several years now, the members of the society also decorate the scene of the ethno programme, the Laško Museum, the entrance of the Cultural Centre and the entrance of Pivovarna Laško. To bring even more flowers to the festival, they will also decorate the stages Jubilejnik and Special.
For this year’s festival, apart from the places usually decorated with flowers, the local society also prepared a few special arrangements with flowers in the colour of the favourite beverage of the festival. The hard-working members of the society created beer jugs made from wine barrels and flowers in the colours of beer and beer foam. They will be placed on viewpoints of the bridge across the Savinja river.
If the weather will be appropriate and the river will be high enough, there will also be special swimming arrangements – boats full of flowers – that will bring even more colours to the festival.
For arranging, setting-up and watering flowers, the Horticultural Society every year receives a lot of help from the workers of the public utility company Komunala Laško, for which the society is very grateful.
