In parallel in the park and the city square the entertainment program is organized. On interactive court "Kingdom of surprising things" there takes place the presentation of the enterprises and organizations of the city, institutions of education, public associations. Works with a row art-cafe: a face painting, cartoons, drawings in the most different technicians – what there is only not present! Everyone can write a wish to the hometown and hang up him on a good tree. Skidelchane use such opportunity very willingly therefore under multi-colored "leaves" already branches are almost not visible! Don't allow to miss also at the book festival devoted to Year of the small homeland: there pass literary browsers "From the fairy tale in the fairy tale", an exhibition competition on the best self-made book "With Anniversary, Native Skidel!".
Already traditionally for guests and residents have held "tasty" competitions. "Sugar races" have divided into two stages: in the first men needed to overcome "obstacle course" with a sugar bag (50 kg!), and in the second – to transfer from place to place already six such bags. While adults were adjusted on a competition, organizers have held "A sugar race" among small skidelchan: boys and little girls have overcome a distance with packings on two kilograms. And on "A sausage marathon" to participants it wasn't necessary neither to run, nor to swing muscles – it was necessary to eat quickly! The winner has surprised even organizers, having swallowed five sausages for … four seconds!
The holiday became the real gift for fans of Instagram. In the park the photocabin of Smile Time "I'm Happy Skidel citizen" works, there takes place the photo contest "A city holiday – my holiday" which participants need to make Skidel's picture and to think up the signature to him and also a photo contest "Skidelchanin NEW" where wait for a photo of the least inhabitants of Skidel. Well and, of course, various photozones among which, for example, colourful "to Skidel 510" can't but please. With pleasure take pictures with "live" sculptures, hodulistami-animators. And, in the evening when already darkens, скидельчан and guests of a holiday will be invited to a fiery show with special effects which will prepare plastic theater "Inzhest" from Minsk.
