Ysyakh

Ysyakh

June 21-22
This is a celebration of the midnight sun, observed in the Yakut region in the northeastern part of Russia on the Summer Solstice. In 1992 the Yakut Autonomous Soviet Republic became the Republic of Sakha (the Yakut people's name for themselves) within the Russian Federation.
The festivities include foot races, horse races, and often sled dog and reindeer races. Folk dancing and feasting—primarily on boiled beef and kumiss, or fermented mare's milk—complete the celebration, which often goes on all night.
