Tomohon (ANTARA News) - At least four countries have confirmed their participation in the Tournament of Flower (ToF), which will be held in Tomohon city, North Sulawesi, from August 8-12.

"The Philippines, North Korea, the Netherlands, and France will participate in the ToF," local Tourism and Creative Economic spokesman Gerardus Mogi said here on Friday.

He added that the four countries, along with state and regional enterprises and some private parties, would participate in a carnival float.

"We are making the necessary preparations and arrangements because the number of participants in the event is likely to increase," Gerardus explained.
