The remains will be poured for all comers to drink.
From 11.00 to 15.00 in the courtyard of Children's Art School there will be a master class on making lanterns and charity campaign "Share a favorite toy." And in the evening, after 17.00, about 600 kids will walk through the center of the city with lighted lanterns. The participants will receive gifts from the organizers, and all viewers will also enjoy fire-show and performances of ensembles. Also the local theater troupe will present the act with ... live geese, that are one of the attributes of St. Martin.
