Hampi Utsav to be held in mid-Jan. Plans to include water sports in TB river

Vijayanagara district administration has finalized that two-day Hampi Utsav will now be held in mid-January 2023. Instead of its original opening date of January 6, 2023, the day after the Kannada Sahitya Sammelana in Haveri. Final dates will be announced within a few days.
The location for the celebration of Hampi Utsav was inspected on Tuesday by Vijayanagara Deputy Commissioner Venkatesh T and Superintendent of Police Srihari Babu BL. They examined the water sports area, the main stage, and other venues that will host cultural events.
The Hampi Utsav is one of the most important events organized by the State Government. The event was founded in the 1980s by former deputy chief minister MP Prakash and has been held every year since. Because of the pandemic Covid-19, the celebration was held in Hampi on the banks of the Tungabhadra river. This time, though, the administration, minister, and local MLA Anand Singh are determined to make the two-day celebration a grand celebration.
“We talked about it with District Minister Shashikala Jolle.” “A meeting will be conducted in this regard on December 5 to finalize the dates,” DC Venkatesh stated.
“There has been a request to extend the Utsav to three days.” A meeting of all the stakeholders will be chaired by the minister. Our primary goal is to make the festival a huge success. “We will begin planning for the event in the third week of December,” he stated.
The administration plans to offer water sports in the Tungabhadra river in addition to customary events like Tunga aarti, cultural evenings, “Hampi By Sky” helicopter flights, light and sound performances, and rural sports. Water sports competitions were held in Kamalapur lake during past seasons.
