Warkocz Magdaleny is an annual festival organized at the end of July in the courtyard of a Jesuit church. It is located in the centre of Poznań, a nice tourist friendly town in the western part of Poland.
Main activities are the competition of the longest braid, the organ pipe blowing contest, brass bands and other entertainment for the whole family.
The contest "Warkocz Magdaleny", named after Maria Magdaleny who wore her hair in long braids (warkocz) is for girls and women of all ages. The most interesting part is when they get their hair done for the competition. Some of them have hair reaching down to the floor and it's getting longer every year!
