Another outstanding Dozinky

Chuck Kajer, The New Prague Times
The 2018 Dozinky Festival was blessed with good weather and great crowds.
The downtown area was filled Friday evening and Saturday with large crowds as thousands of people headed to New Prague to celebrate the harvest, the community and its ethnic and agricultural heritage. The music coming from the Main Street Stage, the Beer Garden and the Czech Heritage Village filled the air, as did the aroma of fresh-made foods, whether it was gyros, cheese curds, pork burgers or the many Czech favorites such as pork, dumplings and sauerkraut.
Everywhere there were smiling faces and happy people. Many former residents returned to visit and reacquaint themselves with the community or with old friends. The parade gave people a chance to see the many groups showing off the talents or skills that they bring to New Prague and the surrounding area. And of course, this being a harvest festival, it was a treat to see the antique tractors and farm implements parade down the street, recalling a simpler time.
Next year will be the 35th annual Dozinky Festival. It’s hard to believe how big this celebration has become in a relatively short amount of time. It’s a time when everyone in the community joins together and celebrates. We look forward to it.
We’ll see you next year, on September 20 and 21, 2019.
