Pidyon HaBen in Ramat Vizhnitz

I was in Haifa neighborhood of Ramat Vizhnitz the other day to attend a pidyon haben ceremony. What is Pidyon HaBen?
Pidyon Ha'Ben, the "redemption of the first born son," takes place when a baby is at least 31 days old, and involves "buying him back from a Kohen." (see Numbers 18:15)

It was the first time that I was in Ramat Vizhnitz. Here's a pic:
