Not only professional artists but also amateurs painted and decorated the exhibits.

One can find bunnies "dressed" in the Ukrainian national costume, wearing furs. There are also "mystery" and "extraterrestrial" creatures, and many others.

As part of the festival, an area for children was traditionally opened on the nearby Mykhailivska Square.

The event will last until April 22.

This year, the Ukrainian Orthodox Church celebrates Easter on April 8.
