The first Intercontinental Etnofest in Ptuj—traditional masks presentations. Even with low temperature (-8°C) and heavy snowing the festival was very well attended. The feathered korants from the Ptuj plain and their horned fellows from Haloze and Lancova are the most popular and numerous shrovetide figures, who, according to folk tradition, chase away Winter and welcome back Spring.

Slovensko besedilo

Pernati koranti (kurenti) s Ptujskega polja in rogati koranti iz Haloz ter Lancove vasi po ljudskem izročilu preganjajo zimo in vabijo v deželo pomlad. Koranti nastopajo pri oračih ali v skupinah, ki jih običajno spremlja še hudič. Nekoč so se smeli v koranta napraviti samo neporočeni fantje, danes pa so koranti lahko tudi možje, otroci in ženske.
