Among guests of a festival there were not only residents of the area. Delegations from Krasnodar Krai, Volgograd, Stavropol Territory, and also from Belarus became participants of Kupalovsky summer.
The Kagalnitsky area for holding such festival is chosen not accidentally: in its territory representatives of 30 nationalities and therefore here a particular interest in ethnic customs and national traditions live.
Entertainment program of a festival included vocal and dancing numbers on the main scene. On the river bank Kagalnik participants of a holiday started wreaths in water, jumped through a fire.
– Day of Ivan Kupala – one of the oldest festivals of Slavic culture, – the chief of regional management of socio-political communications Vasily Oleksiyenko has told. – Idea of this festival – a unification of people of different nationalities and age. The people of Don live one big, close-knit family. In order that good-neighbourhood remained, it is necessary to remember the culture and customs, but at the same time to respect traditions of other people. The number of participants of a holiday are more and more every year, and we hope that over time it will become one of hallmarks of Don region.
