On Sunday, September 17, we prepared both events with the great effort of all members and many other helpers. There were only 34 of us on the hike this year, but the main event, the Holiday of Dried Fruit, was attended by approximately 2,000 visitors.

The hike took a slightly easier route than usual, at Trubarjevina the guide Marta refreshed our memory of the knowledge that most of us once had already acquired about Primož Trubar.

When we hikers arrived at Gradež, a large crowd had already gathered; before the start of the cultural program, all the tables and benches were occupied. Those in charge of serving food and drinks had their hands (and the waiters also feet) full. Guides led visitors to individual points where they could get to know and see the village's heritage. Local products and produce were displayed on the stands, and the performers were already standing next to the stage.

First, the president of the association, Lojze Senčar, welcomed the gathering and told what we can expect at the event. He invited Mayor Matjaž Hočevar to speak, who promised to upgrade the dryer as soon as possible. Then the pupils of the Turjak Primary School, the Krheljčki choir and the Račna folklore group performed in the cultural program.Towards the evening, the Meh Ekspres ensemble took the stage, entertaining with varied dance compositions.

Under the haystack with an exhibition of old tools, our members demonstrated traditional rural tasks again this year, and children and adults could try their hand at archery. The visitors once again especially praised the "Gradež" millet and buckwheat porridge and the desserts, and the line to collect the winnings from the lucky draw was very long.

Although there was a questionable exhibition of mushrooms before the event, which were almost nowhere to be found, we still managed to gather more than 90 different ones.

There is more in Trobla.
