Codlea town, known as the "City of Flowers", recently hosted the seventh edition of the Spring Festival, held in open air, in the historic "Promenade" location. The event aims to promote young local talents and the traditional culture of the Romanians, Hungarians, Germans and Gypsies living in this community.
During its three days, the festival was a great opportunity for the youngsters to show how much they known and cherish local traditions, the songs, the dances, the musical instruments and the old customs of the area. As Petrica Buhnici, director of the communitarian house, stated, ?it is a great joy for us to see how interested the children are in discovering and treasuring the cultural and historical patrimony of Codlea?.
Moreover, during the year, Codlea hosts many events meant to promote local culture. One of them is ?Codlea's Days?, the biggest feast taken over from the Saxons, celebrated on 19-21 June and known as Kronenfest.
The Spring Festival meant dances and music, but also traditional products exhibitions and artisans' artefacts. The artisans could exhibit their products in little houses offered freely by the town hall on the Promenade location, rehabilitated by the municipality according to its medieval look.
