An exposition of sculptures participating in the contest of designs of the Pickled Cucumber monument is opened in Moscow's Crocus Expo Center
Over 20 well-known and young sculptors participate in the contest. Their models have the size of 50x30 cm. All comers can vote for the best project of the Pickled Cucumber monument. The results of the contest will be summed up at a ceremony on October 30. A special commission comprising prominent art and culture figures will count votes. The site of the bronze monument is currently under discussion. The famous Moscow park of sculptures Muzeon situated on Krymskaya embankment near the Central House of Artists was the first to voice its wish to have this monument. The park has already found a special place for this unique sculpture. The festival of pickled cucumbers was traditionally held in Moscow in late October for 300 years up to the beginning of the 20th century. Late October was considered the proper time for opening barrels with pickles. Merchants from all parts of Moscow brought many barrels to markets and treated people to pickles and vodka. Each part of Moscow boasted its own pickling secrets. On those days people crowded at marketplaces looking forward to fun, treatment and free drinks. Unfortunately, the festival of pickled cucumbers was forgotten
