In the Han Tent and 16 thematic tents located in the ceremony area, while local delicacies were offered for sale in food and beverage areas and traditional handicraft shops, institutions and organizations from many provinces kept the spirit of Malazgirt alive. The horse javelin show and horse races also attracted great interest from the guests. The program ended with the torchlight procession that took place in the evening.
