Anthurium Festival 2021, organized by the Department of Tourism under the Govt.of Mizoram comes to an end tonight after a two day celebration at Vanapa Hall, Aizawl.
The show comprises of cultural dances, costume parades, musical artists and other local entertainers.
Mizoram government has been organising the Anthurium festival annually since 2006. Last year, the festival was organized through virtual medium on account of thr pandemic. This year, thr Anthurium Festival, is celebrated offline at Vanapa with selected attendees and broadcasted live through the local Cable TVs and YouTube channel.
The festival is meant not only for promoting Anthurium flower grown in the state but also to showcase the rich Mizo customs and traditions. However, organizing such festivities in the midst of the pandemic is still strongly criticized by many.
