The grand opening of the Christmas village took place in Chernivtsi.
For the second consecutive year, Firtash Foundation, a charitable foundation of Dmitry and Lada Firtash, arranges a real holiday for the residents of Chernivtsi and gives presents to children. The idea to support a Christmas fair emerged last year and it was such a pleasant surprise for the city residents that the Foundation managers have decided to turn the arrangement of Christmas village into a good annual tradition.
"There comes a time which was awaited for a whole year – adults who reflect on the past and make bright future plans, and of course the children for whom this is a time of miracles and gifts. We are sincerely delighted to congratulate the residents of Bukovina with upcoming holidays and to gift once again a real fairy tale to all children of the city", - told Lada Firtash, the founder and manager of Firtash Foundation.
At the Christmas Fair one can purchase colorful Christmas gifts, books, souvenirs, taste the dishes of Bukovinian cuisine, have fun with the whole family and enjoy the atmosphere of winter Christmastide. Besides the traditional fair city residents expect the performances by national Ukrainian musical bands and dancing groups, quizzes and games, while children will appreciate real Father Frost who is waiting for the little guests in his winter palace, and certainly will not leave children without gifts. Foundation has once again presented the residents of Chernivtsi a whole month of free skating on 40-meters skating rink in the city center, while little residents can ride a pony. The promoters took into account the last year experience and increased the number of horsies.
The opening of Christmas village took place on December 19, and it will be open till January 20, 2014.
Residents and guests of Bukovina have a whole month to visit a real Christmas fairy tale.
