Witches Hunting Night Parade (Paleni Carodejnic)
30 April 2023
18:00
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 It is a cross between Halloween and May Day, in which an effigy of a witch, said to resemble winter (or perhaps a historical reference to witch-hunting), is burnt on pyres.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…
