Polish Holidays: Palm Sunday

On Palm Sunday you can head to the Main Square to see a competition of “palms” beautiful handmade poles filled with color and vibrance; as well as, traditional song and dance all day long.  If you have your own palm, don’t forget to take it to church to have it blessed by a priest (you’ll take your Easter Basket 6 days later to bless it as well).

Palm Sunday is also the official start of the Easter Market in the square, so take some time to shop around for goodies!  There are even more markets and celebrations in the days following Easter, that are spread out throughout the town.  But, in the Main Square there will be Easter themed markets from Palm Sunday until the day after Easter.
