October. The time when leaves turn yellow and red, eventually falling off the trees. It gets colder outside and the days become shorter. Yet, there are still great events to have fun at. How about kiting on a hill?

The first October weekend is traditionally about cabbage in the city of Stupava, western Slovakia. Although Slovaks use “kapusta” to describe cabbage, people in western Slovakia say “zelé”. One of the biggest festivals in this part of Slovakia tries to preserve traditions involving regional types of cabbage. Local folk bands, different sorts of cabbage soup, and a traditional fair attract thousands of visitors each year.
