Folklorama 2013: Serbian KOLO Pavilion
Image axs-kolo – Uploaded by AccessWinnipeg

Though the Serbian KOLO Pavilion featured a small cultural display, there was no shortage of relevance and back stories to each and every item. The ambassadors and hosts were very friendly and gave everyone coming into the venue a warm welcome.

A common theme amongst performances was the amount of energy each dancer put into the number. Ages of the performers range from old to young and your heart will definitely melt when children perform a traditional version of “ring around the rosy”.

A live band accompanied most of the performances to give the soundtrack an extra kick. The final dance performance was nothing short of high energy and intensity. It was impressive to see how quick the dancers feet were able to move yet still remain in sync with one another! A great way to end the show!

The Belgrade Beer Fest is an annual festival of beer in Belgrade, Serbia. Each and every year, Jelen wins the title for Best Beer of the festival – so it’s definitely the drink you must try when at the Pavilion.
