We had a honor to attend one of the most festival and get to know more and more about this tradition .This festival is called Harvest festival, which counts centuries and it became a tradition for people to celebrate it . On the 26th of august a harvest festival was held in Góra, where six villages take part in .
honestly ,I can not hide my emotions I was surprised everything was beautiful there. inhabitants made many decorations from their harvest : vegetables , cereals, greens and fruit. according the decorations found out that Silesian people have a high sense of fantasy and imagination.
The festival is hold every year and it takes a long preparation, farmers and gardeners make a huge effort to present their harvest to people in a perfect way.
The festival starts with a mass. This year mass was in Jona Pawła II church. There were many people and guests like major of Miedżna Mr. Bogdan Taranowski and minister of Sport. after mass they go to destination and festival starts. People wear traditional dresses. there are corner for cooking where you can taste traditional dishes, drinks, sweets . homemade honey too.
