We had a busy weekend of celebrations in villages along the Danube.
For the past 52 years groups of canoeists have been arriving annually at the village of Vetren having set off from Ingleshot in Germany some weeks earlier.
To celebrate this the village puts on a special event on the banks of the river Danube, with live music, dancing, folk shows, food and drink. The mayors of Vetren and Srebarna take part in the organisation to ensure that everything goes smoothly. Around 500 people attended this year and a good time was had by all.
The following afternoon celebrations were held in the nearby village of Popina.
Lots of singing and dancing yet again....lovely!
