Jesters Strike Again

The mayor of Split decides to revive the local tradition – organizing a dinner for the city's eccentrics.

In the early 20th century, the then mayor of Split introduced the custom of organizing the annual dinner for the city's eccentrics, known far and wide by their humor and eccentric behavior. On that day, the local authorities would honor them with recognition. At the end of the same century, the City of Split decides to revive the traditional dinner.
