Annually in the middle of May Petergof wakes up after a long winter and turns on its superb cascades and fountains. The celebration dedicated to this event is called the opening of fountains in Petergof. In 2017 the festival is going to take place on May 20. This date is officially confirmed by the Petergof State Museum-Resort. The festival is going to include a theater, music and pyrotechnic show. The celebration will be finished with the solemn shooting of the fountains, accompanied by hymns from Petergof's choir, which can create a unique pageant that will stay in the memory of the numerous audience in attendance for a long time after it ends. After that fountain season is considered opened. You will get acquainted with the Lower Park: learn the names of fountains and their history, have a walk along the park, spend some time on the bank of the Gulf of Finland and give the tsars’ entertainment a try.
