Popular Clothes' Bal


The County Centre for Conservation and Promotion of the Traditional Culture Brasov, Rupea Town Hall and the Communitarian Centre Rupea organized ?The Popular Clothes? Ball?, an event started 39 years ago. Along this period, it only was interrupted the first two years after the fall of the communist regime, then proudly recovered. The popular clothes of the inhabitants, men and women, are of a unique beauty and have been displayed on the most famous stages of the world. However, only two local women know today the head dress?s ritual: it requires a lot of skills to fold it and create a real adornment for the head.

Housewives? Skills and Cheerfulness

According to the mayor Flavius Dumitrescu, by sustaining ?The Popular Clothes? Ball?, local authorities offer the inhabitants the opportunity to relive for one night an ancient atmosphere, when people used to wear with pride their folkloric clothes, sing songs learned from their parents and grandparents, dance the round dance of the village.

This year?s edition was hosted at Ploughman?s Hall in Rupea; the location allows everybody, even those sitting at the table disposed by families of three-four generations, to participate at the dance. Traditional baskets, full of meals specific to the various households and covered with homespun table napkin, were placed on the tables. They talk about the family?s richness and the housewife?s skills in cooking.

Foreign Guests as Merrymakers

The local brass band, already famous in Romania , accompanied the countless popular singers who attended the event, along with the huge number of foreign guests. The popular clothes? parade is not the only unforgettable event hosted by Rupea; the citadel offers permanently wonderful medieval evenings and passionate traditional holidays.
