Floating Jack

St. John Chapel, Halászpart- (’Fishermen’s Banks’), Petőfi- island
12th May

Lightpoints float on the Sugovica River which dressed up darkness, while the crowd follows this gorgeous event on the shore.
It is how it is done in Baja on St John of Nepomuk’s holiday. The after- mess procession leaves in the night hours from the János (St John) Chapel to the Sugovica. The St. John statue which is decorated with flowers is put on a torch- decorated ship, while burning wreaths are let in the water. During the water procession the ship is surrounded by other shps, boats, kayaks an canoes, each carrying a torch or candle, while folkmusic can be heard. The crowd follows them till Sugovica Bridge in the centre. Arriving here, there is a folkmusic- folkdance show, barrel tapping till late- night and a feast in honor of the statue.
