Iran (IMNA) – "Urban managers of Afus have been running the festival for some years. We hope that snow continues to fall in the following years in order to hold such happy programs and create a cheerful space," the general manager of Isfahan's Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts, and Tourism Organization said.

"Further and special attention to hold such events can help to introduce tourism capacities of this area, we should have serious and basic planning for this festival as well, since it has a high potential to attract tourists," Allahyari continued.

Of course, some problems are out of authorities' hands; there was no snow fall during the last year due to the drought, and a break occurred in holding this program. As we have expected that there won't be enough snow this year, we could not consider a right and optimal timetable," he noted.

"Such programs have enough potentials to be held nationally. We should have national calls to run Snow Festival nationally in this area and be the witnesses of participating artists and tourists from all over the country and even on an international level. This winter festival should be continued and registered in the tourism calendar of Isfahan and Iran, and officials should try to hold it more magnificently and beautiful every year," he added.
