Maslenitsa Snow Games
Russian Cultural Garden
February 22, 2015

A Maslenitsa celebration always has snow games and the first annual Maslenitsa in the Cleveland Russian Cultural Garden was no exception. The snow and cold was not a problem for the event - it was a welcome necessity! Maslenitsa is celebrated outside in Russia so outdoor activities are expected and part of the fun.

A huge snow fort was built which led to snowball fights, sledding and Capture the Flag type games.
