For the last 50 years, 4th August has been a very special day in Selce, as the first swimming baths were opened on this day back in 1894. This event celebrates the tradition of tourism in Selce. It starts in the morning with a get-together on the waterfront with portions of fried fish, local wine and music. In the evening, there is a boat parade with a large sailing ship and specially decorated boats illuminated with lanterns and decorated with ash branches. There is also a party in the centre of the town.
