They have a drama show they play for the kids here, the Bibars Sarai Epic featuring Princess Suyumbike, Bibars-Bek the Warrior, and folk character Hodja Nasreddin. Visitors are introduced to Tatar folk musical instruments and offered to play them. The other amusements on offer are archery and crossbow shooting, donkey riding, and Sabantui, Tatars' favourite festival that celebrates the end of spring crop planting, which visitors are invited to join.
