(KZN.RU, July 8, Alina Berezhnaya). The Flower Festival will open today in the square in front of the Puppet Theater “Ekiyat”. 32 compositions will be presented in an area of 23 thousand square meters. The theme of the fifth festival is “The Bright Colors of Summer”. Igor Kulyazhev, the deputy head of the Kazan Executive Committee and the chairman of the Committee for External Improvement, announced this at the Business Monday today.
Each composition is unique; not only flowers, ornamental trees, shrubs, but also art objects, decor elements, and artistic lighting were used to create them, said I. Kulyazhev. This year, 15 organizations took part in the festival, including landscape firms, housing and communal services, construction and retail companies.
The festival is part of the large-scale project “The Blooming Kazan”, noted I. Kulyazhev. Every citizen can contribute to the design of the city. A contest for the best design of facades, adjacent and yard territories of houses will last in Kazan until August 30. Applications for participation in the competition, photographs and the address of the location of the flower decoration must be sent to the website. Winners will be chosen by voting.
The winner in the nomination “The Best Floral Frame of the Urban Environment” will be chosen as well. As a prize, he will receive an SLR camera. The best photos will be posted in the anniversary album, dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the TASSR, said I. Kulyazhev.
Ilsur Metshin, the Mayor of Kazan, noted that every year the “Flower Festival” is becoming more and more popular, while the flower decoration is expanding in Kazan. “The “Flower Festival” has proven itself well; it grows not only in area, but also in the number of participants. In general, flowers delight the eyes of Kazan citizens not only in the center, parks, and squares, but throughout the city. Thanks to everyone who takes part in it. It is important to continue working on the task of making Kazan the most comfortable and beautiful city”, concluded I. Metshin.
