Feast of Ivan Kupala 2011

June 24th, we went to the other side of the Volga, together with the Military Historical Club "Gardarika" in order to participate in the festival Ivan Kupala. The event was organized VIC "Camelot" from Nikolayev.

47 photos






In order to get to the place instead of OMIK, we had had to sit on the cargo ferry and ride along with cars.




View of the place of celebration




On the ferry




And in the distance, my hometown - Kamyshin




Move the heat to the destination



Start preparing, natural arrangement of their camp in the first place



Local girls already making wreaths of herbs



If there was a contest for the best hat, this guy would have won



In our camp, too, is in the process of weaving



Local photographer for night shooting invented here is such a monopad



Fire and the wheel for the event are ready



Without dinner and celebration is not a holiday



The most delicious food cooked on the fire turns



Workpiece torches



Wheel



Try dinner



The girl from our camp



In anticipation of the holiday



Our friendly staff at the parade



Those who do not have time to change clothes, dress up



Sacrament



Leading holiday



Organizer



Women begin to untie the rope and turn the wheel



Ribbons enough for all



Dance around the wheel



Then the guys lit the torch ...



And kindle a fire



Fire is one of the main characters on holiday



Runaround



Each time dance gathered speed



Then the local girls sang and danced



Trickle



Trickle



Games were fighting pillows



Long time no one on the log kept



Another amused tug of war



Played all. except for me, of course)



Jumped over the fire



And then piled wheel



Set fire



And rolled



And then until the morning singing songs



And then a new day
