Dulce Floare de Salcâm
Every May in the picturesque village of Văleni, located on the banks of the Prut River, the ethnographic-folklore festival “Sweet Acacia Flower” takes place. Held in a meadow full of blooming acacia trees, the festival brings together folk groups from the region, as well as from nearby counties in Romania. Here, people passionate about traditional dance and music and the customs of our people gather. The local group “Crăițele”, led by “boonika” and “boonelul”, characters beloved not only in Moldova, but also beyond its borders, is not missing from the festival.
