Czech Village is managed by the volunteers of the Czech Heritage Club of New Prague.
Nancy and I felt honored to be invited to display and sell our farm heritage books and Czech apparel at a booth located in the Czech Village, which consisted of a group of tents in a space between two downtown building on the north side of the main street in New Prague. Pedestrian traffic kept us busy all day as friends stopped by to say hello and as customers checked out our books, tee shirts, sweat shirts, caps, and visors.

By noon both sides of the street were lined with people eager to watch the Parade of Farm Pride, which features a variety of floats from organizations, musician, political figures, and tractors new and old.

Nancy and I wish to thank everyone involved in organizing and managing Dozinky 2012.
We especially thank Vi Chromy and Deb Ziskovsky for inviting Nancy and me to display and sell our books and apparel at the Czech Village. We were proud to be part of it.
Visit New Prague during Dozinky next year. You and your family will be glad you did.
