Specific for the village of Eleshnitsa is that the mummers festival there is held on the first day after Easter and costumed women also take part in it.
Every year on Easter Eleshnitsa scares away evil spirits from the old year with traditional rituals, carnival masks, lots of music and dancing.
The holiday is associated with the spring awakening of nature.
Preparation for the mummers festival continues almost three months as this is the most awaited event for the local people.
Attraction during the Mummers carnival is the traditional contest in singing and dancing. This is an incredible feast of sounds, costumes and colors.
