And the celebration ended with a dance around the beautiful Christmas tree with Santa Claus and Snow Maiden.
At the same time two huge multi-colored balls lit in the form of voluminous New Year’s toys. And at once they turned into a popular photo zone among numerous guests of the holiday. These balls-toys, one painted in bright blue-green tones, and the other in red-yellow, fit very harmoniously into the New Year’s interior of the central square of the town.
