Bakova povorka 2023. godine.
For this 2023 edition, the traditional Masked Ball and Carneval Parade took all citizens and guests on a journey through time and space. Be it with a partner, friends, family or guests, they made this extraordinary event, a moment to remember, masked with its elegance, whimsicality and pure drama, the greatest parties of citizens. Small City of Imotski, as Croatia also has its own famous carnival magic.The carnival tradition old more than 100 years must go on. ( the oldest document dated from 1891 year).
In this hard times,tradition of masquerade live constantly in Imotski.
As all say, It’s not fair to have life as a serious player every moment, every day, every year. Don’t forget to smile in these hard times. There are good times to come, we need to believe that.
So, Voluntarily organization „Bakove svečanosti“ elicited a smile and joy to all masquarades and fellow citizens, organizing one of the oldest Carnival parades, locally called ” Bakova povorka ” what is the most important and most entertaining event in this small town of Imotski.
To everyone is in common one thing, searching for the culprit for all the bad things happened last year. The culprit is always found and it is the Prince of Carnival or this creature called Bako in Imotski. He was judged to all bad things and all the evil that happened in the past year, he admits his guilty and then his burning following on the carnival Sunday parade at the main square, mocking current political situations and city events that marked previous year.Old “Bako” the symbol of freedom of speech and voice one’s emotions and opinions without judgement leaved once again the new testament with its original humor. As the culprit is burning, all the evil and all the misfortunes go with the smoke, celebrating the end of the winter and the beginning of the spring and all the good of this world, but Life is always full of a masqued people, concealed the identity of the persons wearing it, and perhaps a bit more scandalous !
