Shklov welcomes the festival of cucumber

On August, 8, Shklov welcomes the festival of cucumber for the forth time. Traditionally the festival is held at the Palace of Culture square near a funny sculpture of cucumber. Famous local gardeners will present their vegetables during the festival. The best gardeners who have grown the largest harvest will be awarded with special souvenirs. Besides, a trade exhibition of cucumbers of all sorts will be held.

The festival of cucumber has been held since 2006. Though, the festival has already had its traditions: the best gardeners are awarded with souvenirs; they also are asked for their know-how. The sculpture of cucumber was erected in 2007; it represents a figure of a cheerful man holding a basket of cucumbers in one hand and a yellow flower of this vegetable – in the other; there is also a little cap in the form of a cucumber leaf.
