It was a lovely day, and it was well attended. There was a range of activities, certainly not limited to pancakes - but they were there. There was a series of performances on the stage by dance groups and singers from Russian, Serbian, Slovakian, Ukrainian and Polish groups (perhaps others as well), a number of very popular food stalls and a fair area.
We encountered quite a number of friends and acquaintances, so there was a bit of catching up. These included a former workmate of mine who I had not seen for over 25 years (he recognised me, but I only identified him after lots of clues!)
