Herdelezi- St George's Day


The Roma here celebrated a big holiday for them on May 6th. It is when they stay up all night on the 5th, having a party...then early on the 6th they go across the river and back again. They are taking any bad luck to the other side of the river and bringing good luck back home...or so they believe. I was invited to come down and take pictures of some of my friends as this is a "dress up" type of event for some.
