In Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky noted the 274-th anniversary of the founding of the city

17 October 2014, the 274-th anniversary of the founding, according to tradition at the monument to the founder of the city Vitus Bering held a solemn meeting at which all citizens and guests of the regional capital on the Day of the city were congratulated by representatives of the Government of the Kamchatka Territory and the Legislative Assembly of the region, the head of Petropavlovsk- Kamchatka urban district Konstantin Slyshchenko, representatives of the Kamchatka diocese and the command of troops and forces in the North-East of Russia. At the end of the rally, the assembled people laid flowers at the Vitus Bering monument.

Every year, on the City Day, a solemn ceremony of dedication to the Honorary Citizens of the city takes place in Petropavlovsk. This year, two residents of the regional capital were awarded this high title at once - they are Alexander Alexandrovich Demchuk and Anatoly Ivanovich Taranets, who was awarded this title posthumously. The ceremony of consecration to the Honorary Citizens was held by the head of the Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky urban district Konstantin Slyshchenko and representatives of the regional center administration, who presented the attributes of an Honorary Citizen to Alexander Alexandrovich Demchuk and the family of Anatoly Ivanovich Tarantz.

Honorary citizens and the first persons of the region planted young trees in the center of the city. This year, the planting campaign was held on the shore of Lake Kultuchnoye, which will now be adorned with young stone birches, which are a symbol of the Kamchatka Territory.
