On March 1st, 2015, the Honorary Consul and Community of Moldovans in Chicago (CMC) celebrated the Coming of Spring in the “Sezatoarea Martisorului” event. According to tradition, Mărțișor thread, knitted in white and red, is a symbol of passing, from the cold white winter, to the lively spring, associated with fire and life.

The event featured speeches, jewelry pop-up shops, and performances by Moldovan singers, and took place in the newly restored Stan Mansion, which is located in the historic and charming Logan Square, recognized as one of the oldest neighborhoods in Chicago.
