Yekaterinburg city administration to hold flower festival in Osnovinskogo park

The Yekaterinburg city administration recently announced that it will hold a special flower exhibition in the Kirov region's Osnovinskogo park as a part of ongoing conservation and improvement efforts in the park.

The holiday flower garden event will begin at noon on Sept. 27 at the park's central flower bed near the Masters street entrance. Throughout the day, spectators can peruse the park's floral arrangements. Musical group Spectators is scheduled to give an outdoor concert during the event, Ekburg.ru reports.

This year's flower garden program was organized by by Yekaterinburg city duma Deputy Svetlana Uchaikin, the leader of the Committee on Ecology and Nature, with support from the Kirov district's administration. The event is the result of numerous proposals from area horticulture groups.

During the event, Uchaikin's team will oversee the judging of an art contest wherein students of Yekaterinburg's eighth congressional district schools were invited to submit drawings under the theme, "My City-- the cleanest, flowering and radiant." Winners will be announced prior to the Spectators concert, according to Ekburg.ru.
