All-Russian Maslenitsa (Pancake Week) in Pskov
February 27, 2013 16:04


All-Russian Russian Maslenitsa (Pancake Week) will be held in Pskov for the fourth time. This year the carnival week will be held on March 11-17. 

The new symbol of Maslenitsa this year is the Pancake King. The centre of the All-Russian Maslenitsa 2013 in Pskov will be the site "Pancake Records of Mercy". The motto of the participants of this event is "Show yourself, look at others, participate in good deeds". The proceeds will be directed to the fund of support for families with adopted children.

The city of fairy-tale sculptures will be open on the territory of the All-Russian Maslenitsa festival: the sculptures are expected to represent the characters of the children's fairy-tales, "The Donkey", "The Scarecrow", "The Fairy-Tale Bird", "The Lumberjack", "The Cat" and "The Goat". The special stand constructions around the fountain in the Botanic Garden will present the faces of Pskov Maslenitsa for the last three years. Everyone who visits Maslenitsa Photo Vernissage and finds pictures of himself will get a special prize of Pskov Maslenitsa.

Also the Fair of Crafts will be open within the frame of the All-Russian Maslenitsa in Pskov. The visitors of the fair will be able to see the works by the leading craftsmen of Pskov and Pskov region: items made of vines, bark and cattail, wicker baskets of birch veneer, soft and warm felt boots, knitted, woven and embroidered items, artistic forging, carving and painting on wood, beads jewelry, author's textile dolls, ceramics and many more.

Maslenitsa festivities will end with a farewell to Maslenitsa. The fire will create a fairy show. The doll symbolizing the leaving winter will be involved in the performance as a separate character and, as expected, at the end of the spectacle will burst into life-affirming flames.
