The Mardi Gras celebration (Pancake Day) took place on the 12th of February in Marcinkonys, the largest village in Dzukija National Park. The community of Marcinkonys, teachers from Marcinkonys school and people from Dzūkija National Park and Čepkeliai State Nature Reserve attended the event. They had to compete: to catch as many fish with a bag full of ice, throw snowballs and hit the target, pull the rope. The Marcinkonys community has won. They will have to organise the Mardi Gras fest next year.
At the end of the event Morė (the symbol of winter) were taken on fire. Everybody shouted asking the winter to leave and the spring to come.
We invite you to explore holiday moments in photographs.
