The organizers of the event announced that the Carnival in Nikola Lenivets will take place on March 16. Tickets for it were sold out a month and a half ago. However, those who wish will be able to watch the main performance online - the burning of the 22-meter black mountain.

Nikola-Lenivets is the largest art park in Europe around a tiny village in the Kaluga region. Here, a collection of works of modern art and architecture unfolded right in the open air. International artists and architects, as well as local residents, participated in the creation of the objects. For 20 years, Maslenitsa has been celebrated on a large scale in Nikola-Lenivets and huge art objects have been burned.

This year, the prototype of the object was a formidable fire-breathing mountain. The 22-meter-high volcano is built only from used and unnecessary natural materials. Branches for the facade were found in the field, and the boards were brought from the sawmill. Hay was used in the construction, which is no longer suitable for feeding pets.

Until the burning of the object, guests of the art park who came to Maslenitsa will be able to climb the volcano and admire the fields of Nikola-Lenivets. To do this, there is a spiral staircase inside the mountain, and a special ramp outside.

The apogee of the holiday will be a fiery performance that will "awaken the black mountain." "The fire brothers will stomp and laugh and lead a common course around the black mountain, in which everyone will find a place," the organizers describe the action.

Then the giant art object will light up. The fire performance will repeat a real volcanic eruption with smoke, sparks and ash from the crater.

The guests will also enjoy games, competitions, a master class on creating costumes from natural materials, a traditional Nikola-Lenivetskaya fair with wooden souvenirs, pancakes and warming drinks.

The day will end with a special kuma dj set. Guests will be able to enjoy the intertwining sounds of nature with percussion, vocals and the crackle of dying embers.
