EVENTS ORGANIZED BY THE CENTER “STINTAPŪKIS

"Darniai banguojančioje šiuolaikinėje ir senosios Kuršių nerijos epochų pynėje, Neringoje rengiama žiemos šventė kurios pagrindinis akcentas – poledinės „bumbinamosios“ stintų žvejybos demonstravimas. Tai senovinis vietinių kuršių žvejybos būdas, kuomet žuvis yra gaudoma tinklais, pastatytais po ledu. Žuvys į tinklus būdavo viliojamos medinių plaktukų, mušamų į po ledų pakištą lentą garsais. Dažnais žvejas tą ritmą palydėdavo žodžiais – „stinta pūki, stinta pūki, lysk į tinklą…“, kurie ir nulėmė šventės pavadinimą. Šventės svečiai kviečiami paragauti keptų, rūkytų stintų, žuvienės bei kitų žuvies patiekalų. Šventės metu organizuojami įvairūs edukaciniai užsiėmimai, žiemos sporto rungtys, žaidimai. Poledinės žūklės „Nidos blizgė“ varžybos, „Ice Blokart“ ledrogių čempionatas – neatskiriami šios šventės atributai.

"ŽIOBRINĖS"
Linksma pavasarinė žvejų šventė, kurios pagrindinis akcentas – ant laužo kepami žiobriai. Šventės laikas pasirinktas pavasarį, kai žiobriai iš Baltijos jūros masiškai plaukia neršti upėmis aukštyn. Šiuo metų laiku, kaip ir rudenį, šios žuvys – vienos iš skaniausių. Kuršių nerijos žvejų balandžio pabaigoje – gegužės pradžioje minėtų „Žiobrinių“ metu būdavo aptariamas besibaigiantis pavasarinės žūklės sezonas. Šventės dalyviai gali patys lauže išsikepti ypatingai paruoštą ir ant medinių vytelių pamautą žuvį. Šventę praturtina įvairūs atlikėjai, žvejiški žaidimai, interaktyvūs meniniai užsiėmimai, amatų mugė.
