Where will the traditional event take place
|Red Square||Here, guests of the festival will see festive illuminations, various attractions for children, an elegant forest beauty and of course a festive fair. In the days of school holidays, various master classes from world hockey champions and famous figure skaters of our country will be held at the rink. Folk groups and stars of Russian show business will perform on the square.At the mall will sell handicrafts, various souvenirs, gifts, treats, etc.|
|Manezhnaya Square||Last year a real forest area of several hundred spruces grew here. In its various corners, scenes of the fairy tale "The Twelve Months" were played out. Anyone could join this magical act. Perhaps in 2019, the organizers will surprise us with even more impressive decisions.|
Last year, a huge ice slide was organized from this square at the passage to Manezhnaya, where everyone could ride. Then its height of 7 meters and the length of one hundred meters struck all the guests. It seems that in 2019 something similar will be organized. After all, the organizers of the holiday already have experience of building huge structures made of ice from Pervouralsk.
Perhaps in the coming year, the square will be organized: a two-story carousel, carpentry workshop, where children will be taught to make their own decorations for the Christmas tree.
Guests of the festival believe that the school of good manners will open again, where they will teach etiquette, housekeeping and preparation for the ball. All present will get acquainted with the traditions of ancient Russia.
|Tverskaya square||Last season several pavilions were organized on this square: “Kitchen”, “Living Room” and “Glass Theater”. In the first, they were introduced to Christmas sweets. In the second, they taught how to make dolls for the home theater, and in the third, glass-blowing masters worked. All this had to please the guests of the holiday. Probably, next year we should continue this practice. Also, for sure, the International Christmas Theater will open its doors, where guests will get acquainted with the tales of other states.|
|Gogol Boulevard||In the next season, an elegant Christmas tree will appear near the Cathedral of Christ the Savior, next to which will open an old Christmas crib. It also does not hurt to continue to acquaint the younger generation with the traditions that were in Russia for the New Year and Christmas. Most likely, here, as before, they will sell products of monastic artisans and other church goods. It is good if they continue to acquaint themselves with the traditions of charity during the great church holidays.|
This place is especially liked by children. And all because here is organized the Santa Claus Laboratory.When kiddies spend various chemical experiments to protect the main characters of the New Year holiday: Snow Maiden and Santa Claus. Here is a roboelka for children. At this event, kids with their own eyes can see how robots-dancers and robots-actors are having fun.
On the boulevard in 2019, they will surely create the “Winter Games Alley”. Here you will find the “Snowy shooting gallery”, as well as you can ride on various slides, etc. With the help of instructors, children will learn to ride a snowboard and do winter sports.
Near the monument to Timiryazev will run the main Christmas shop. In it you can buy not only souvenirs, but also try original dishes and drink fragrant drinks.
