The folk fest lasts all 7 days and includes outdoor celebrations, visiting friends and relatives, and baking pancakes that symbolize the Sun.

Maslenitsa is an Eastern Slavic holiday, bright and loud, celebrated during one week.

On Sunday, the last day of the festivity, all parks of Novosibirsk traditionally hold celebrations with round dances, trade fairs, concerts, horse riding, different folk competitions and of course burning the Maslenitsa effigy, the tradition that symbolizes saying farewell to the cold winter and welcoming of the long-awaited spring.
