Abstract. The group walk is considered to be an element of traditional ritualism. There are certain kinds of the walk such as in a straight line, in a circle and arbitrarily, and by a specific trajectory which are analyzed. During performing of any type of the walk the ritual action would gain sacral and magical meaning. For strengthening its effect declamation, singing, attributes (sacral; specially made for a holiday; certain objects or things which gained sacral meaning during a ritual) were used. Eventually, the group walk changed on a contrary to the traditional one and gained the new form and the new significance: an accurate breakdown into the columns and lines, and a ceremonial walk down the streets. In modern cultural practices the walk is also a part of common events but it lost its sacral and magical significance.

Keywords: group walk, calendar ritualism, sacral and magical actions, change, cultural practices.
