Soren has a grand celebration once each year in mid-summer called Upine-Kar. It is a celebration of the upine tree and its great cultural importance. It is held at Soren, the largest city of Eshtar. This celebration is centered around a single upine tree which is planted in a large wooden tub and wheeled about the city upon a wagon for one week. At the end of the week, the tree is taken to the next largest town and the celebration moves with it. Each town, in turn, celebrates for one week when the tree arrives. After the tree has visited every town of significant size, it is taken back to Soren and planted along the Avenue of Years with all previous celebration upine trees. Upine-Kar begins Icebreak 5.
