The cheese festival began in Rakhiv
The Festival "Hutsulska Bryndzya" was launched in Rakhiv. Traditionally, it began with a solemn procession that stretched for several kilometers from the district state administration building to the Burkut tract, where the festival takes place. The procession was joined by representatives of all village communities of Rakhiv district dressed in national costumes and accompanied by music. Among the participants of this year's festival, there were about a hundred manufacturers of natural home-made cheeses. The average price is estimated to range between 55-60 UAH per kilogram. Not only Transcarpathian manufacturers, but also those from neighboring Ivano-Frankivsk region came to sell their products.
Mrs. Mariya from Ivano-Frankivsk region brought to the festival 100 kilograms of various kinds of cheese. She is sure that she will sell everything, though maybe she will have to reduce the price because of the high supply.
"In our family everyone makes cheese: me and my husband, my daughter and her husband, my son and his wife, even little granddaughter helps - Mrs. Mariya told uzhgorod.in. - During one day in the meadow, together we make up to 80 kilograms of cheese."
At 13.30, at the festival they will set a traditional bonfire, which will launch the greatest autumn event in Transcarpathia. The number of tourists has already reached several thousand. We will keep informing you on the progress of the "Hutsulska bryndzya" festival.
