Dear VodaFest friends,
We hope you had a lovely Easter break and are looking forward to the next VodaFest event, which celebrates the end of cold Winter and beginning of the Spring in the Northern Hemisphere - The Maypole Building & Spring Traditions, held on
Saturday 2 May 2015 at 46 Locks Way, Belgrave South.
For the 3rd time Sumava Peksa Park will open its gates for the big and small in order to learn about the pagan tradition of our ancestors still followed in various regions of both Czech Republic and Slovakia. Maypole building (raising) and Morena Witch burning will be accompanied by dancing, singing and a number of workshops for the children.
A full day of fun and delicious cuisine will be had so join in together with you family and friends!
