Every year group of enthusiasts organize unofficial Pancake week celebration.
People gather on a field deep in the forest and start to have fun: they toboggan
fighting "wall to wall"
And the main action in taking of the snow fortress
Then the scarecrow, that symbolize the winter, is set on fire
the celebration ends.
