Santa Claus arrived at Kuzminki Park on his carriage to congratulate the guests of the New Year Event. Everyone got a chance to shake his hand, make a wish, and even read poetry right next to the Christmas tree. The children loved taking pictures with Santa Claus and of course spent some time checking his beard to know whether or not he was real.
