Alexander Kibovsky: Moscow ready to celebrate the Day of Family, Love and Fidelity

More than 70 thematic, theatrical and concert programmes will be held in Moscow on the Day of Family, Love and Fidelity. The main festivities will take place at Tsaritsino Park, where married couples will be awarded medals “For Love and Fidelity”. Guests will be entertained by popular actors and musicians, contests, workshops, sports games, various performances and fireworks.

“Moscow is ready to celebrate the Day of Family, Love and Fidelity. Lots of events will be held on 4, 8 and 11 July. The Tsaritsino estate museum will be the main event venue. On 4 July, it will host large-scale festivities, among them an all-day interactive concert programme,” said Alexander Kibovsky, Moscow Government Minister and Head of the Department of Culture.

Those who wish to play drums, take singing lessons, or try their hand at making cartoons are welcome to visit thematic workshops and studios. For enthusiasts of active recreation, there will be badminton, frisbee, rings and tug-of-war in the sports zone.

The family leisure zone will offer lessons in yoga and strength improvement, as well as lectures on healthy ways of life. For kids, there will be a special playground with a ball pit, a thrilling soap bubble show, an aqua makeup studio and a cartoon zone.

The Russkaya Pesnya (Russian Song) State Folk Theatre, under the direction of Nadezhda Babkina, will give a festive concert preceded by a ceremony to award medals “For Love and Fidelity” to 12 married couples.

From 3 to 11 June, wedding palaces and marriage registration centres throughout the city will honour long-married couples and hand out birth certificates in a solemn atmosphere upon parental request.

Social service centres will each come up with Family Day programmes of their own totalling more than 300 events: festive concerts, family literary and music parties, meetings with clerics, lectures and talks about Saint Peter and Saint Fevronia of Murom, art studios, family amulet workshops, family sports games, quizzes, the “Family Photo Album” and “My Family is the Best Family” photo exhibitions, tours to holy sites in Moscow, and many more.
