March 14, 2021, Maslenitsa is finally seen off in Russia with pancakes, round dances and bonfires.
Due to the pandemic, many Russians stayed at home and celebrate the wide Maslenitsa with their families. Nevertheless, many Russians went to parks and city squares to take part in the traditional burning of the effigy.
On March 14, Maslenitsa is seen off in Russia with pancakes, round dances and bonfires.
The main carnival of Russia this year took place in Yaroslavl. Mass festivities, round dances, pancake tastings, a life-size puppet competition are held here, and the best “Maslenitsa Beauty” is chosen.
Traditionally, a gigantic installation was burned in the Nikola-Lenivets art park. In 2021, it is a 24-meter vine castle, which the artists have been building for several months. Nikola-Lenivets is a modern, outdoor exhibits like sculptures & towers, built around a tiny village in a national park and located in Kaluga Oblast, Russia.
According to the organizers, the traditional ritual of ending winter this year also meant saying goodbye to the pandemic. People solemnly burned a 24-meter-long installation of vines and hay, the so-called “Corona-Man-Eater” castle ( or ‘Crown of Man-Eater’), which also looked like a building with “giant ampoules”.
As conceived, this performance is a cure for all diseases. The castle burned well – people believe that the coronavirus will decline.
In the city of Yuryev-Polsky, ancient amusements are revived – buffoonery games, tug-of-war and burning a stuffed witch-cold witch.
On the island of Sakhalin, during the Maslenitsa festivities, they prepared the largest pancake in the Far East with a diameter of 2.5 meters. Its weight was about 15 kg.
In Irkutsk, the celebration of Maslenitsa was canceled due to a blizzard and wind with gusts of up to 25 meters per second. Burning a scarecrow in such weather is dangerous.
