    There's a festival in Kikinda called Pumpkin Days (Dani ludaje). It takes place in the middle of October.

    On this day, there are different competitions; women from Kikinda (Kikindjanke) make pumpkin pies, pumpkins are measured and weighed, schoolchildren make masks and take part in pumpkin relayraces...There's also a parade and a fair with food on the town square.

    Being a festival, it can't be imagined without music. So a lot of folk dance and singing groups perform on the stage in front of the museum.

    Vrbica is a children's holiday celebrated on Saturday before Orthodox Easter. On this day mothers dress their children smartly and take them to church. Each child usually wears a 3-coloured (red, white and blue) thin band with a small bell round his neck.

    The very name of the holiday-Vrbica comes from Serbian word 'vrba', meaning 'willow.' People put small branches from this tree next to the family icon.
