The New Year’s Eve Festival Journey to Christmas will be held from 12 December 2016 to 27 January 2017, and the number of available sites may be increased.
The announcement was made by the Head of the Department of National Policies, Inter-Regional Relations and Tourism of Moscow Vitaly Suchkov, who was quoted by TASS News Agency.
According to Mr. Suchkov, it is not possible to expand the festival sites, but their number will grow, since the festival involves activities across the entire territory of Moscow. The festival will welcome its guests with fairs, concerts, shows and entertainment programs in the parks.
