Our Memories

PFE has traveled near and far over the last five decades. These are some of our highlights throughout the years.

Ivana Kupala is the most magical and colourful celebration of the summer solstice.

On this enchanted evening, one can look into their future and see their romantic destiny. 

Young maidens would weave vinky (wreaths) then place or toss them into the river.

Many believe that its behaviour in the water would reflect their future romantic relations.

“What will happen to my vinok?” the youthful girls would wonder. “Where will the water take it? Far, far away from me? (Meaning her future husband would come from afar) Or will it return to the riverbank from whence it was thrown? (Meaning she would marry someone local)

Will it break apart? (Meaning a broken relationship) Or will it sink? (Meaning someone’s death)

Flow my wreath, flow calmly and smoothly. Flow to my lad and tell him of my love…”
