Monstration – what is it?
Monstration (demonstration without -de-) is an event when many people paint posters with funny slogans and walk in the streets. People usually wear colorful clothes. They smile and sing songs. The main goals of the monstrators are to express themselves and cheer people up.
Since the first of May, 2010, a monstration is held in Perm each year. That morning about two hundred people walked with posters from the square near the Soldatov`s House of Culture along the Komsomolskiy Avenue. Some of them were dressed in funny and bright costumes. Others were carrying balloons and small flags in their hands. They waved and smiled to passersby.
For the inhabitants of our city Monstration is a new and very original tradition and it is a part of the celebration of the Day of Workers which is May 1. It is also an excellent opportunity to spend time with friends and family and to have a lot of fun.
