Al Hamal is Arabic and can be translated as the ram's head. It refers to the constellation of Aries and is associated with the vernal equinox and the coming of spring.
Come celebrate the coming of spring with the Shire of Steren Codha on March 22nd, 2014 as we host the Constellation Regional Arts and Science Contest.
In addition to the competition we will be having combat of all kinds, classes, a lunch tavern, and merchants for shopping.
We hope to see you there!
