Maškare – carnival time in Hvar

Poklade, carnival, maškare, is the time of the year starting with the Three Wisemen lasting until the beginning of Lent. Although it has a fixed time of starting carnival doesn't last the same each year as it depends on the date of Ash Wednesday. Culmination of carnival is in its final days, from Friday till the most exuberant Tuesday before Ash Wednesday. For us that is the ''Zodnji od karnevola'' (the last of carnival) with the parade, party and craziness around town with the reading of the final will and testament and symbollic burning of Jure Karnevol. Finally in the evening there a formal costume dance lasting until midnight. On this day the whole town is involved in partying and general craziness.

Unusual players

Wild geese (Lat. Anser anser) are excellent fliers who travel over great distances. In order to traverse these massive distances with no problems these beautiful creatures constantly have to keep their feathers in excellent condition. This is why these birds spend so much time grooming their feathers. They do it even when they only stop to rest. This small flock used the occasion to pick up any nutritious snack from our ''stadium''. Let's wish them a happy journey and that they meet no hunters' gun barrels on the way to their destination.
