Tomorrow on November 2, 2010, Medellin will celebrate it’s 335th birthday. The city is gearing up for this celebration by having independent party locations setup across the city with the main party located in the main park in Poblado where the city was originally founded. There will be plenty of music, food, fun and festivities for all in attendance.
In addition, the office of the mayor has setup a special website for the citizens of Medellin to leave their well-wishes, photos, poems and letters as a gift to the city. So far, the number of responses have been in excess of 40,000. The office of the mayor is heading up this birthday campaign with the slogan, Medellin – an unstoppable city and has produced television commercials as well as print advertising to get the word out. The television and print ads have been running non-stop now for over a month in an attempt to alert and prepare the citizens of the city for the city-wide celebration.
