The Town Hall of Sanpetru Commune and the Local Council of Sanpetru organized ‘Rușcuța de Primăvară’ Festival, the 7th edition, from July 1st to July 2nd 2017, at ‘Iosif Silimon’ Air club in the locality. The event aims at promoting the ancient customs and traditions, as well as the young talents in the locality. It is a good opportunity for people to get together, to attend a representative show for the community, and also an opportunity to attract tourists and promote the cultural and historical values of the locality.
Traditions and modernity
‘Sanpetru commune is a modern, European locality, with streets and real estate developments. We want to combine traditions and modernity. This festival is a continuation of the promotion project of the tourism potential of Sanpetru commune, that was implemented seven years ago. Every year, the festival grew and added value to the locality. The program starts with Junii from Sanpetru who start from the locality and invite people to the festival. For two hours, they walk on the streets, accompanied by the fanfare, adorned horses dressed in traditional costumes specific to Juni. The moment is impressive’, told us Mr. Ion Rusu, Mayor of Sanpetru Commune.
Promoting young talents
The first day of the festival is dedicated to young people: sports, a program for young talents, music with Claudia Miritescu and Nocturno Band, recital of Alyanna Lu and fireworks.
The next day, after the Juni parade, the following happen: the official opening, fanfare music and German traditional dances, the folk ensemble ‘Rușcuța de primăvară’ of the Secondary School of Sanpetru, an extraordinary recital performed by Ionuț and Doinița Dolănescu, ‘Plaiuri Transilvane’ Orchestra, ‘Șipot Ardelean’ Group, ‘Țara Bârsei’ vocal group, an extraordinary recital of Matilda Pascal Cojocărița, ethno music performed by the ‘Româncutze’ band, entertainment with Dan Badea and Gianina.
Gliding and skydiving
The location of the festival was properly chosen, since, besides the outdoor stage where the artistic program was organized, there were also gliding demonstrations, gliding acrobatics and skydiving. The gliders from ‘Iosif Șilimon’ Air Club in Sanpetru are national and international champions, carrying gliding traditions further. The most exciting moment was the one performed by a skydiver, who jumped and unfolded the largest flag ever made in Romania during his flight, a flag measuring 450 square meters.
