Space Christmas Tree Party in St. Petersburg
World New Year is returning for the third year in a row to teach young residents of St. Petersburg and guests of our city various New Year traditions. This time, the children are invited on a tour around our galaxy and learn a lot of new things about its structure. To do that, young astronauts (aged 3–6 and 7–14) will take a quest quiz entitled “Citizen of the Galaxy,” which connects seven stations with assignments for every member of the family. During the quest, the children and their parents will test their knowledge about atmospheric elements on Mercury and get their Mercury citizenship papers, study their super-skills on Venus, learn the traditional dance of residents of Uranus, help finish the construction of a research base on Mars, and much more. The final point of the quest quiz will be the Galaxy of Gifts, where each traveler will get nice gifts and delicious treats.
World New Year is not only a quest: the event program includes many other entertaining adventures. For instance, here you will be able to try what Space Speed feels like. The sports zone under this name will be the place where our young visitors will exercise their little legs on the trampoline, ride on the merry-go-round and take part in safe Turbo Bears Star Wars zone (laser paintball). Those of the guests over the age of seven, will experience the Parallel Reality in the VR zone. With the help of audio-visual technology, the children will travel around space and operate a real drone wearing their VR glasses.
Young, inquisitive minds will be invited to attend Sky Lab educational workshops. Here, they will attend lectures and classes on the topic of space, where each visitor will turn into a scholar and inventor. And those children who like to work with their hands, will attend creative workshops, where they will make soft and fluffy wire toys, paint a picture of “space dust” with colored sand, paint wooden toys, and much more.
The youngest of our guests will enjoy the Lilliputian Planet space, where they will be able to “swim” in a dry pool, or play some learning games. For instance, busy board homes help young children to develop their fine motor skills.
Chernomor, a family musical performance, will be shown twice a day. This show will tell its spectators a story of love, valor and honor. Ruslan and Lyudmila, Chernomor and the Black Beard, the Cat and the Golden Cockerel, as well as dancers, gymnasts and circus actors – all of them will meet in a big musical fairy tale based on Russian epics and works by Alexander Pushkin. The show will amaze the audience with bright music, vivid acting, beautiful costumes and incredible 3D-mapping technologies.
Point of Sustenance food court is awaiting those who will want to take a break and try some real space food, or, perhaps the dishes they know well.
