One of the Most Popular Holidays May 05, 2017
City Day is one of the most popular city holidays. We have observed it on the second weekend of September since 1980. In 2008 this holiday was observed on the third weekend of September.

You can see the improvised stage mounted at the entrance to the Russian Drama Theater in Kotsiubinsky Street. Theater Square becomes the center of festivities on City Day. You can see different shows and concerts on that stage. The concert is given by local groups as well as variety singers from different cities.

Folk dancing has always been very popular here. There are several folk dance groups that are called dance ensembles. They often take part at different holidays and people like to watch them.

There are such amateur dance groups at conference centers (called Palaces of Culture).

They attract many students, especially girls who seem eager to show their dancing art at the city holidays such as City Day in September.

Greek dances has always been among the popular folk dances that are performed in Young Guards Park downtown. Gypsy dances are another hit of our folk dance groups. Those dances are often performed at the city stage. The dancers use hand-made costumes and recorded Gypsy music that is so lively and breath-taking. The audience always bursts into applause.

Another hit among the local amateur dancers is the Arab dance that can has many variations and can be seen along with Turkish dances.

During the City Day celebrations (the second weekend of September), many amateur dances present their at the gala concert in Young Guards Park and in Theater Square.

The gala concert is over at about 9 p.m. and is followed by huge fireworks display that attracts thousands of people every year.

The Flower Show is a traditional part of our City Day celebrations. The flower show takes place at the bridge near the railway station. Many schools, universities, colleges and enterprises of the city present their creative flower compositions and get grades for that. As a result, winners are announced and awarded. You can buy some room plants here, see the concert at the improvised stage and meet you old friends and acquaintances here.
