KRASNOYARSK, March 21. /ITAR-TASS/. The Krasnoyarsk-based flora and fauna park called ‘Royev Ruchei’ will celebrate this year’s wakening of bears by staging a holiday dubbed ‘Beary stretch-outs’ in pajama party style. The zoo’s press service reported this to Itar-Tass on Friday.
Residents of Krasnoyarsk are invited to watch the wakening of brown bears on Sunday. “Entry in pajamas and house slippers is welcome. Everyone who wants to greet the master of taiga after the winter may take part in special contests,” the spokesperson said.
In particular, the visitors will be able to stage a pillow fight, tug of war with a blanket and compete in a race in huge showcase house slippers. Those who like taking pictures will be able to use a themed ground with soft toys, a bed and a warm blanket.
The brown bears will get a festive breakfast. “Our specialists will prepare tasty big sandwiches for the bears. The base will be made of non-yeasted bread, and the sweet filling will be made of honey and nuts. We’ll also prepare porridge with berries and raisins,” the zoo’s press service explained.
The wakening of bears will be celebrated in this zoo in such a way for the first time. In the Slavic folklore tradition, the vernal equinox feast that takes place in late March has always been associated with bears. This is the time when the animals wake up and leave their lairs. Villagers dressed as bears and staged the awakening of the bear, tumbling and stretching out.
