The base price of the ticket was 100 rubles, with any visitor free to donate more.
The winning visitor received the “Friendly Man” plush toy hand-made by Kseniya Vdovkina, the executive director of Civil Union foundation Oleg Sharipkov told PenzaNews.
According to him, only around 40 organizations out of the original 50 joined the festival, because of the sudden downpour.
“Everything was very great until the rain began. The only thing that was disliked is the borders around the festival grounds. Normally, people visited here however they wanted, but this time the festival was boarded off, with regulated entry. This, as well as the rain, contributed to a decrease in visitors,” he explained.
According to preliminary count, the total money earned during the festival through souvenirs reached around 20,000 rubles, said the executive director of Civil Union foundation.
