This festival is as known as Walpurgis Night in England but we call that burning of the witches. It starts on 30th April and it continues to 1st May. It is old heathen celebration. They believed that witches have fall down to coven and this night has magic power. The main errand was celebration of eugenesis. But we celebrate coming of Spring.  

Children have masks of witch and there are lampions in their hands. Everything starts of parade of little witches and there is the main witch in front of the parade which will be burn. The main witch is from  straw and old clothes. Usually children make the witch in school with their teachers. Then some judge say sentence and ketch give the switch to the bonfire. Children scream and dance, adults drink and everybody has good mood. You can broil sausage in bonfire. The festival is ended by firework at 1 o’clock.
