Basic information

The annual carnival pageants in the villages at the foot of the Kamešnica mountain, from the area of towns of Sinj and Trilj and the Municipality of Otok, have traditionally been held for a long time, handing down and preserving local carnival customs. The invasion of an uproarious pack of colourful, unruly rams, known as the Didi, marks the day of the carnival pageant at Gljev, a village in the Dalmatian hinterland. Similar carnival customs have also been preserved in the rest of the villages at the foot of the Kamešnica mountain. Known as the Annual Carnival Pageant from the villages at the foot of the Kamešnica mountain (Godišnji pokladni ophod mačkara podkamešničkih sela), these carnival customs have been included on the Intangible Cultural Heritage List of the Republic of Croatia.

Saturday 15 February 2014, 8:30 a.m. the annual carnival pageant starts from the village of Gljev, popularly known as the Didi s Kamešnice association. The way leads them through the villages of Gala, Han (Obrovac Sinjski) and back to the village of Otok. The pageant will last until 5:00 p.m.
