Grand Grad Party in St. Petersburg: 25,000 fireworks fired

Posted on June 21, 2014 by tim


In St. Petersburg, they have a tradition where they hold a massive event called “Red Sails” for the high school graduates each year, and have done so for almost twenty years. They had the same tradition in the 1970s during the Soviet reign, however I doubt it looked anywhere near as colorful as they make it now. Photographer Marina has climbed the top of the Hermitage building to take photos of the event. Fireworks, an actual sail ship with red sails, party lights – all this has been photographed from the top of the most famous building in St. Petersburg, which was a residence of the Tsar in pre-communist Russia.

25,000 fireworks were fired that night, see the fireworks below.
