Maskal- Finding of the True Cross

ADD TO MY TRIP

On the day of the festival, bright yellow Maskal daisies are tied to fronds, and piled high in town squares. Colourful processions of people carrying burning torches converge on to the square, where a pyre is lit and the celebrations continue until dawn. In Addis Ababa, the celebrations take place in Maskal Square, to the southeast of the City centre.
