The citywide New Year's festivities in Blagoveshchensk were canceled this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. There will be no festive fireworks either, and the sponsorship funds intended for the fireworks will go towards New Year's gifts for the children of health workers.

According to the press service of the Blagoveshchensk administration, New Year's parties in schools and kindergartens will take place, but without the participation of parents and artists. The city authorities urged residents of the city to abandon corporate events.

From December 31 to January 8, animators in mascot costumes will walk on Lenin Square, on the Amur embankment and in the Druzhba park. You can see them from 13 to 15 hours.
