The annual festival dates however starting from 1985. Since then the festival grew to a mass Event, to which millions tourists come from all over the world. Thus the sculptures became more beautiful and more artistic each year; this bear is a small part 50 meters is enough for wall sculpture. Slide8:  Each part realized by individual competitors.
