The feast merriment always starts on Friday with traditional hand-construction of May Pole (mája) and with dance on Saturday.
On Sunday, after the noon local youths in costumes and other people meet at the May Pole. Everyone then sets out through the village in a parade with music for the elderlies. Ceremony full of music and dance takes place at their houses. The feast then continues in local hall where the party continues with feast entertainment. Solo of the elderly, costumed solo and
non-resident solo is sound during the feast. They demonstrate their coming with knocking the door. On Monday, the feast continues with dance with masques.
