One of the features of the 8th traditional autumn Chrysanthemum Ball, which started in Feldman Ecopark last weekend, is an increased number of excursions from different regions of Ukraine.
During the first weekend (on both Saturday and Sunday), the Social and Humanitarian Multi-Complex welcomed more than a hundred of excursion buses with the visitors to the Ball. “A huge number of visitors, who arrived together, came not only from different regions of Kharkiv oblast, but also from the neighbouring one: Poltava, Sumy, Dnipro, Zaporizhzhia, and Donetsk. There are also the representatives of more distant regions – from central, southern and western regions of Ukraine,” the organizers told. “In general, despite a quite cold and rainy weather on the first weekend of the Ball, it is still very popular among the guests from other regions and Kharkiv residents. Current dynamics makes it possible for us to hope that, by the number of visitors, the Chrysanthemum Ball 2019 will break the records of the previous years.”
“Weather forecasters promise a real Indian summer for the next three-day weekend, so the number of visitors will increase even more. We have prepared a rich entertaining programme for them, which will be devoted to the upcoming holidays – Intercession of the Theotokos, the Day of Ukrainian Cossacks and Defender of Ukraine Day. As for those who prefer calmer leisure, we are waiting for them during the week-days,” they noted in Feldman Ecopark.
It should be reminded that Chrysanthemum Ball in Feldman Ecopark is Ukraine’s largest floristic festival, which takes place under the auspices of the International Charitable Foundation “Oleksandr Feldman Foundation” each autumn since 2012. This year, nearly 45,000 chrysanthemums of 30 species of domestic and European selection are presented here. In addition to flowers of different forms and colours, special floral photo zones and statues, including a wolf and a peacock, a frog and turtles, the Bremen Town Musicians and a Ferris wheel, the planet Earth, a chamomile, scenic floral chandeliers and other interesting compositions have been prepared for the visitors. Chrysanthemum Ball in Feldman Ecopark traditionally lasts till the cold weather sets in, and it is possible to attend it absolutely free of charge.
