Halubajski zvončari are an authentic heritage group from the eastern part of the small Kastavština region close to Rijeka. In the olden days, the region was all pastures and sheep. During heavy rains, shepherds would seek refuge in the cottages built from stone, wood or straw, called haluba. According to folk tales, sheperds would dress up in sheep skins and hang cow bells around their waists when they followed the sheep into the woods during spring time, to chase off evil spirits. They beleived that the bells bring them luck and chase the curses deep underground and do them good while they carried them through the forests. Wikipedia says so, and we say that the Halubajski zvončari will have their hands full when they try to coral our black sheep on Saturday, May 13th, starting at 3:30PM at the Baška promenade.
