Biloxi’s Slovenian Lodge awaits arrival of Croatian President
BILOXI, Miss. (WLOX) - Biloxi’s Slovenian Lodge anticipates a visit from Croatian President Zoran Milanovic. He’s expected to arrive on Friday.
When President Milanovic touches down in Biloxi, it will mark the first time a Croatian president visits the coast.
While preparing for the President, they’re also whipping up food for the 48th annual Slavic International Golf Tournament this weekend by cooking over 200 racks of ribs.
Lodge director Michael Kovacevich said he’s expecting over 800 golfers this year.
Kovacevich said he’s looking forward to the tournament. He also said seeing the Croatian President in person is a chance of a lifetime.
“The President of Croatia, you know. I mean, if I was to go to Croatia, I probably never meet him. But he’s coming here to meet us, so that’s exciting,” Kovacevich said.
President Milanovic will visit not only the lodge; he’ll also visit Biloxi City Hall and sample some of the coast’s famous cuisine.
He’ll also visit Belle Chasse, Louisiana for the grand opening of its new Croatian Lodge.
