Have you heard? Storks are coming to Lekenik tomorrow! Let’s welcome them together

Our traditional event “Let’s Welcome the Storks”, which celebrates the coming of spring, will have some new features this year.

 Friends and partners of the Lekenik Municipality, the Koprivnica-Križevci County Tourist Board, decided to combine their own big event, the outdoor installation of a giant Easter egg to celebrate the biggest Christian holiday Easter with our celebration of storks returning to Lekenik. The event will take place in the centre of Lekenik, in front of the Municipality building, on Friday, March 18.

The entertainment programme will feature children singing songs and reciting poems about the arrival of spring and the upcoming Easter holiday. Children from Elementary school Mladost, Kindergarten Lekenik and SOS Children's Village Lekenik will join forces and their young, but strong voices to let everyone know that storks are returning home. Kids will also showcase their art and decorate the ‘traditional old cottage’ in the centre of the village with their spring-themed drawings. The folk dancing society Kolovrat from Lekenik will perform a series of songs and dances.
In addition to the children, hosts and our dear guests, the event will also be attended by the Prefect of Sisak-Moslavina County Mr. Ivo Žinić and the Lekenik Mayor Mr. Ivica Perović.

Join us in this celebration and welcome the most beautiful season of the year with us!
