Czechoslovak Independence Day in 2016

This is getting to be my annual ritual ceremony of taking photos of military procession and fireworks on 28th October in Olomouc...

It is a public holiday in Czech Republic. Rather, it's an Independence day. On October 28th in 1918 Czechoslovakia declared its independence against Austro-Hungarian Empire.




As always, military procession started at 17:40, leaving from Horní náměstí and headed for Žižkově náměstí where the ceremony took place. 



Similar to last year, a young blonde boy soldier took the lead this year...





Happy Independence Day!
