The Maslenitsa Week is one of the merriest and playful Russian folk holidays. Maslenitsa is about setting up ice slides and swings, putting up vending tents, baking pancakes and building the Maslenitsa effigy, to be burned later. Muscovites are in for public festivities, performances by singers, mock competitions, surprises and delicious pancakes. By tradition, Tverskaya and Manezhnaya Squares, NovyArbat Street and Kamergersky Lane, Kuznetsky Bridge, Moscow parks and public gardens, Kolomenskoye and many other locations throughout Moscow will host the festivities.
