A festival of fertility under the title “Food Day” is being prepared by the City Hall of Polikraishte and the Board of Trustees of the local community center “Razvitie”. It will take place on September 17 on an outdoor stage in the village and will include something for everyone. The beginning will be at 9:30 a.m. with the celebration of a festive water festival. For visitors, there will be an exhibition of grain, honey, bee products and confectionery, as well as an exhibition of ritual bread, which will be titled “Bread in the holiday calendar of the Bulgarian”. The guests and residents of Polikraishte will also taste the traditional Garden soup of the village, and the good mood of those present will be ensured with a folklore program by local and visiting ensembles.
