Presponedelnik in Shiroka laka

Every year, on the first Sunday of March in Shiroka laka, is held the traditional mummer festival "Pesponedelnik". The pesyatsi roam from house to house to drive away evil and wish health and prosperity to the owners. After touring all the homes, the pesyatsi gather in the square of Shiroka laka, where they recreate the customs of the wedding between the elder and the bride of the village, as well as the birth, plowing, and sowing of the fields. The games turn into universal merriment, accompanied by lots of music, dancing, and wine.
