On Saturday, March 16, 2013 rotary club Almaty held another event of a series of charity events with a national flavor-Russian Maslenitsa.
Guests were greeted with necklaces of Russian mutton, sandwiches with red caviar, honey and other delicacies. The ensemble of the Gypsy camp, children's ensemble of Russian folk instruments, traditional harmonist and... live dancing bear! The walls of the Intercontinental hotel have never seen this before!
Guests were happy to take pictures with the figure of the Maslenitsa and savored traditional Russian dishes prepared by the hotel's chefs and cooks.
A brief but vivid overview of the festive atmosphere of the event you can see in the photo gallery below.
