VLADIVOSTOK, May 01. /ITAR-TASS/. More than 40,000 residents of Russia’s Primorsky Krai have taken part in the May 1 procession in Vladivostok. Last year, 35,000 people participated in the procession on the city streets, the press service of the regional administration told Itar-Tass.
This year the procession route, the same as in 2013, ran on the bridge across the Zolotoi Rog Bay that just in two years after its building has become a recognisable symbol of the Primorsky Krai capital. Then the procession participants marched along the city’s most picturesque streets where the city dwellers welcomed them.
Primorsky Krai governor Vladimir Miklushevsky said that the Zolotoi Rog bridge festive procession is becoming a new good tradition of Vladivostok. “The bridge across the Zolotoi Rog Bay is a new symbol of Vladivostok. Today, thousands of people of different professions and age have again marched shoulder to shoulder over it. Only together we can make our region even better and more beautiful. Only on us the future of Primorsky Krai depends,” the region’s head stressed.
It is noteworthy that the Zolotoi Rog bridge, built for the APEC summit in 2012, linked the city’s centre with the district where the first ever May Day meeting in the Primorsky Krai capital was held in 1901.
The May Day procession ended in the city’s central square where artists from all over the region will be performing till late night. Several interaction zones have been organised here. The May Day craftsmen’s foundry includes mater classes on painting wooden handcrafted item, while clay figurines, and a press wall for taking pictures against the background of the Olympic and Paralymic flames is installed at the sports exhibition ground of the Fetisov Arena.
