Flugtag Russian style: the craziest Battle Sleighs

Participants of the Battle Sani (or Battle Sleighs) competition for unusual sleds slid down a 200 meter-tall mountain in Moscow’s Sokolniki Park to celebrate the end of winter

The festival’s competitors rode down the mountain on a carriage, an inflatable pool with heated water, a cannon, a tank, a flying saucer, and even a Trojan horse.

Participants were offered to create their own sleigh concept in military style (the festival was part of Defender of the Fatherland Day celebrations) and cascade down the mountain. After the jury’s votes had been tallied, the team Striped Flight took first place for their unique sleighs shaped like a water-filled swimming pool that they delighted the public with.
