Timkat in Bahr Dar?

I am looking at a tour of Ethiopia, supposedly to include seeing the celebrations of Timket. The organisers tell me this will be in Bahr Dar - but I can only find references to celebrations at other locations. Will there be any celebrations here - or would I be better to go with a different company that offers seeing the celebrations in Addis?

Thanks

As said by the other, Timkat is every where as each church is making it's Timkat. Some places are more known as Gondar, AA, Lalibela because of the scenic place where it is.

But it's also full of tourists because of that and extremly expensive.

I've seen it in Bahir Dar differnet time. It works mostly over 2 days and you can also see the Timkat in the small churches around, and it's very very nice.

Bye
