Some PR company from Moscow thought up of touring small towns and putting on silly paint-throwing events. On Friday, July 14th, this questionable form of entertainment comes to Kandalaksha. The activity starts at 6pm near the former Spolokhi Hotel, at Naberezhnaya 130. They wrote me and asked me to help in promoting this craziness. Here I am, done.
A competition of these minimalist snow vehicles – poor man’s snowmobiles that can be bought new for an equivalent off just over $1000 – locally called “motosobaki” (“motor dogs”) is taking place on March 3rd 2019 in the “Penki” area of the abandoned military section of Kandalaksha. The event starts at 1 pm.
Snow Figures Festival is to take place in Kandalaksha from March 1st to March 3rd. Location: in front of the City Administration building. The Department of Culture is currently accepting applications from those who wish to participate. The winners are to be announced on Sunday, March 10, the end of the Shrovetide week.
Nordic walking, where people, for the reasons that elude me, pace along with skiing sticks but no skis, is vastly popular in Kandalaksha. Today I noticed a poster announcing a Nordic walking competition that is to take place on Sunday, October 21, in the city park. The poster indicated no time when the event is taking place but most happenings of this sort start. The location was given as “on the left side of the Niva River”. I assume it along the trail in the city park, accessible by a suspended bridge from Ulitsa Naberezhnaya.
25 artists, mostly from the north-western parts of Russia, plan to work on the White Sea coast between Kandalaksha and Umba from July 25 to August 5. Sketches will be exhibited on August 4 at the Local History Museum in Kandalaksha. Works based on the collected materials, when ready, are promised to be presented to the public from September 21 to November 18, 2018, in the Regional Art Museum in Murmansk at Ul. Kominterna 13.
