History
History

Every celebration has a history....
In the village Borima they say that Plum Festival has nearly 80 years of history. The beginning was announced by the village crier: "... Come on ... in Stafuns’ field at the plum feast. Grab some brandy and go to the feast..." And all people used to go to the Stafuns’ family’s field after harvest. It was reported how rich the harvest was, how many plums were dried, how much brandy was distilled in the distiller house. Then, the participants in the festival on the field headed to the center, where the mayor or the school welcomed with a festive speech the local participants and the guests from the district. Festivities began after the official part. Rural musicians played, people danced and sat at a long table, as everyone brought a "bundle" (table cloth), in which they wrapped homemade bread and homemade salad, everyone brought own cutlery, everyone had to bring brandy and glasses to treat the other people with his own crop.
