More than hundred thousand spectators watched the firework on the bank of Miass river

The final chord of the festival was a firework in honor of the 279th Chelyabinsk anniversary. There were more than one hundred thousand people on the embankment of the Miass River. Hundreds of lights colored the sky to the music . Fireworks of the dense fire lasted 15 minutes. The most powerful high-altitude shots seen from almost all parts of the city have been blown off at the end of the show. Including the shots that hadn’t been blown on the Victory Day due to the poor weather conditions.

"This year's City Day coincided with the elections. But these two events didn’t get in the way of one another but logically complemented each other, - Eugene Teftelev said. – Only the weather could have destroyed the City Day, but it was good . We planned a very large number of events at different venues for the 279th anniversary . And it is incredibly pleasant to realize that they were popular. I enjoyed it at the Theater Square the most . The scene wasn’t empty and the audience was moving and changing as well. Next year Chelyabinsk will celebrate the 280th anniversary. It is a milestone birthday so we promise to think of something special for it. "
