Witches Hunting Night Parade (Paleni Carodejnic)
30 April 2023
Witches’ Night is an ancient folk festival held across the Czech Republic to mark the end of winter and the start of spring. It is a cross between Halloween and May Day, in which an effigy of a witch, said to resemble winter (or perhaps a historical reference to witch-hunting), is burnt on pyres.

In Prague, a lantern parade starts around 6pm at the Lesser Town Square, and proceeds to Kampa Park to burn the witch around 7pm.
Lesser Town Square, Prague 1 and all aroud Czech republic families to small villages…
