ZAGREB, 28 Aug, 2021 - The 40th local food festival "What are old folks ate" opened in Vrbovec, some 40 kilometres northeast of Zagreb on Friday, with President Zoran Milanović attending.

In his address, Milanović, under whose auspices the event is being held, said that the event was not so much about tourism as about preserving tradition.

"You are preserving the memory, the material memory of something that is part of you. That is important, that counts," he said, calling again on everyone to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

The 40th "What our old folks ate" festival is taking place from 27 to 29 August. It was not held in 2020 due to an unfavourable epidemiological situation.
