Holiday of Halushky in Poltava

Last weekend Poltava celebrated its own unique holiday, The Holiday of Halushky. Halushky, Ukrainian folk meal, are a traditional variety of thick, soft noodles or dumplings irregular in shape. They are made with wheat flour and/or potatoes. During the holiday that took place on the main pedestrian street of the city, many local inhabitants and guests were treated to these old and very varied meals.
It is worthy of mention that the holiday have taken place near the only one in Ukraine Monument to Halushky shown on the photo.
