Parks will be celebrating women, spring, music and Moscow with outdoor photo exhibitions. Various festive programs will be held on the territory of 18 Moscow parks. So, this year Muscovites have a big range of activities to choose from: you can participate in flower races, learn how to plant primroses, visit a fitness festival, and many more. We’ve prepared TOP-5 parks to visit with FREE programs, enjoy!
In Gorky Park, the celebration of International women’s day will be held at four sites at once. A professional artist will be waiting for guests at the “Voskhod” ice rink. It will take him about 10 minutes to draw a sketch portrait of any representative of the fair sex. In addition to the drawing, girls and women will be presented with a bouquet from the Park’s partners.
In the evening, there is going to be a traditional concert at the “Voskhod” skating rink. At 7 PM you can listen to Moscow band MyHoliday. Their music is an ideal soundtrack for a slow ride through the ice paths of the evening park.
In the tent near the ice rink from 2 PM to 5 PM everyone can take part in a master class on creating floral watercolor. Under the guidance of an experienced artist, you will be able to learn various art techniques. Each participant will feel like a real artist and walk up to a canvas and paint a unique bouquet. What is more, there is going to be a disco on ice and fun contests. On a festive holiday women can enter the ice rink for free and take a few photos for Instagram in a spring photo zone decorated with flowers.
The annual Flower race will be organized for men in Fili Park. Its participants will be given flowers so that runners could present them to their beloved women after crossing the finish line. The event will start at 1 PM at the main entrance to the Park. The flower race will also be held in the Park of the 50th anniversary of October. Gathering of participants is at 1 PM at the Family Square. From 2 to 5 PM there is going to be a concert program.
