Children’s Masked Ball in colourful Lekenik

Mardi Gras in SOS Children's Village Lekenik marks the culmination of Carnival festivities!

 SOS mothers and SOS aunts worked on the costumes and masks for their children and themselves for days, getting everyone ready for the Carnival. The traditional Children’s Masked Ball, during which children proudly show off their costumes, took place in the main hall of the SOS Hermann Gmeiner Social Centre. The event was emceed by the author Rusmir Agačević, a great friend of the SOS Children's Village. After announcing all the costumes in the competition, he introduced the judging panel and invited everyone to step to the dance floor. Given the wealth of impressive costumes competing, the judges did not have an easy task.

Third place in the group costume category went to the Little Doctors, second place was won by the kids who wore costumes depicting the Quarantine, while first place was shared between Traffic Lights and Muffins.

Third place in the individual costume category went to the Little Witch and Dangerous Lion, while second place was shared by Severina and the Brave Pilot. First place was deservedly won by Mistress Scowler from The Brave Adventures of Lapitch!
There was no dilemma about who among our staff deserved the award for best costume– the winners were clumsy handymen Pat and Mat from the eponymous animated series!

After the winners were announced, we enjoyed dancing to the music performed by our Musical Dreamers, still wearing our costumes of course! And naturally, the Carnival wouldn’t be complete without delicious doughnuts donated by the Mlinar bakery chain.

Congratulations to all the winners. We are already looking forward to next year’s Carnival and new, even more creative costumes!
