Comprised of gadulka virtuoso Nikolay Kolev, internationally-renowned singer Donka Koleva and select musicians, “BULGARIKA” performs at concerts, parties, educational institutions and other public and private venues across the U.S. and internationally. “BULGARIKA 2014” tour presents “Horoto e Vechno” - “The Dance is Eternal” - and invites you to experience the unique range of Bulgarian rhythms and dances and savor a taste of the Bulgarian lifestyle.

Здравейте КАЛИНКИ и ПРИЯТЕЛИ,
 
 
Калинки, заповядайте заедно със вашите семейства и приятели в парка в Сънивейл за да отпразнуваме един голям Християнски празник с вкусни козунаци и писани яйца.
 
Жоро ще донесе пресни кебабчета, кюфтета, луканки за който иска да си закупи и да зареди хладилниците. Той няма да пече кебабчета и кюфтета, но ако някой иска да запретне ръкави може да използва барбекюто в парка.
 
Приготвени са няколко изненади
 
За който ни донесе най-вкусния козунак!
Запретнете ръкави и да не забравите 100 пъти да биете тестото...
 
За най-красивото Великденско яйце!
Пригответе си четките и боичките и ни покажете скрития си талант да нашарите и украсите яйцата!
 
За който сепечели борбата с това специално яйце!
Играта ще е честна - само истински яйца, но с единственото желание яйцето да не се счупи!
 
Ще има специално жури от много известни сред българските среди творители на вкусни ястия, торти, козунаци и много други вкусотии, майстори на четката и да ... някой с мускули :-)
 
За да участвате в съзтезанието за най-вкусен козунак, най-красиво Великденско яйце, или борбата с яйцата елате на 20 Април в парка!!! 
 
Малки, големи и още по-големи са добре дошли!
 
Но не само за съзтезанието и борбата елате за веселбата, за танците, за да сме заедно на този хубав празник.
 
За ядене и пиене всеки да приготви или донесе каквото пожелае. Ако имате удобни сгъваеми столове донесете ги.
В парка има баскетболно и волейболно игрище, за любителите на футбола има голяма поляна, както и детска площадка.
