Cooking contest, concert, competitions as well as souvenir stalls and many attractions will be featured in the coming Egg Feast which is being organized by Pavlikeni Municipality for a second year in a row. The one of its kind fête drew a lot of attention last year and is promising to be just as successful this year. It will be held on May, 1st with events starting from 10.00 am. Co-organizer of the fest will be the local Haipro egg factory which will provide more than 3600 eggs for the day.
The feast will last more than 12 hours and it will be held under the slogan One egg – many ways. According to Pavlikeni’s Mayor, Emanuil Manolov, last year the event gathered more than 3000 people in the town’s square. This year he’s promising even more fun, contests and of course prizes.
Visitors will be presented with the opportunity to taste the delicious omelettes prepared on the spot. Also many egg-related crafts will be demonstrated and there will be many stalls with souvenirs, sweet treats and flowers. A specially designated area will show traditions typical for the villages in the area. A key point in the day will be the cooking competition where everyone can show off with their skills in preparing appetizers, dishes and desserts from eggs. A jury headed by the renowned cook Ivan Zvezdev will evaluate the tasty creations. The winners will receive unique prizes made by the famous jeweller Konstantin Kostov – first prize will be a golden egg, second – a silver egg with a golden belt and the third place will receive a silver egg.
A large stage will also be set up; throughout the day it will hosts the performances of many artists, musicians and bands. And while you’re in Pavlikeni don’t forget to visit the Antique pottery centre, the town’s museum and the small zoo.
