Walk of Fame comes to Cyprus!
Cyprus will soon have its very own ‘Walk of Fame’, similar to the Alley of Stars in Hollywood, where 2.500 celebrities have each acquired a star, visited by millions of people over its span of existence.
The Cyprus Walk of Fame will allow for local and international stars to leave their mark on a Limassol street and for people around the world to visit the site. Stars will be awarded to people in the realms of arts, sports, business, literature, medicine and public work or any other individual who has made a significant contribution to the state and to society, irrespective of their nationality or place of residence.
All main aspects of the project, organized by the Limassol Municipality and “CWOF Walk of Fame Ltd” have now been finalized and the Grand Opening has been set for the 2nd of July 2014.
The Cyprus Walk of Fame, as an entity, also plans to participate in other cultural and public Cyprus events: competitions, festivals and TV-shows. The organizers plan to hold a Cyprus talent competition on TV. By becoming a sponsor of such events, the Cyprus Walk of Fame will not only award the “star” to winners, but also be responsible of taking care of their further development as celebrities.
One more – rare – feature of the project is the possibility of receiving “private stars”, in that anyone, at a small cost, can acquire their own star, as a gift to their child, a friend or a partner! These stars will be situated on a different Limassol Street to that of the actual “Walk of Fame”.
The programme is a self-financing one and the local authorities will not incur any costs.
