"PIG KILLING FESTIVAL!!!" Jablunkov by barbipez

Jablunkov Travel Guide: 99 reviews and 160 photos

my friend and i went to Jablunkov to visit a friend of his there and take part in what we called the PIG KILLING FESTIVAL!!!

Every year they have a cultural day, where they butcher a lot of pigs, and then have a celebration full of food, drink, traditional music, dancing, a play, and much more!

we arrived, dressed in sunday best, to the community center. Jablunkov is near the Polish and Slovak borders, and the language is a mix between Czech and Polish as the town's population contains both.

lots of the kids dressed in traditional czech costumes and sang and did a few dances, as did some of the adults.

i'll add some more pics in a travelogue... :)

coolest thing -there was a tombola (raffle) and the winner got a PIG HEAD!!! AND IT WAS REAL!!!! (i got images of that too!!!)
