As the contractor representative Ivan Bondarev told the This Is Taimyr, the New Year theme in 2022 is northern animals. But the main character is an inquisitive, decisive and artistic adventurer – the black and blue Water Tiger.
To erect figures in the town, 420 ice blocks with dimensions of 5×1.5 and 1×2 meters will be required. The water in the lake is quite clear, so the ice is transparent. Part of the material has already been brought to the future New Year site in the Dolgoye Lake park. Its opening is scheduled for December 18th.
The contractor is also working in the Kayerkan district this year. It has its own New Year theme. An ice town is also being erected in Talnah. This winter, new figures made of fiberglass are being prepared for residents of the mining district. There the work is promised to be completed by December 15th.
Last year, ice sites in Norilsk were opened with fireworks, and the theme of the ice figures was Russian folk tales.
