The Chamber team and volunteers did everything possible to ensure guests’ satisfaction and happiness. This family holiday was celebrated with tasty American food, numerous fun contests, face-painting, ice-cream, cotton candy, cold beer and soft drinks. As this year Picnic theme was connected football, guests had an opportunity not only to enjoy a variety of football themed activities but also take photos with Euro2012 Mascots – Slavko and Slavek!
The occasional rain did not scare Picnic guests who enjoyed Frisbee, football and volleyball games on the field of green grass. This year’s Kids Zone was especially popular! Water zorbing, trampolines, inflatable castle, countless sweets, and other amusements made the day for the children impossible to forget.
This year Igor Posypayko, the host of the Picnic, once again made sure all guests had fun and facilitated entertaining contests, giving out lovely prizes from the sponsors. Ukrainian Music Holding "Lavina Concert" brought celebrity headliners to the event including the Ukrainian rock band "Tabula Rasa" and pop singer Gaitana. Besides, Picnic guests had an opportunity to enjoy performances from the rising music stars Nycholas Tym and Koffein Music Band.
The culmination of the celebration was stunning and breathtaking fireworks which took place right after the Grand Raffle and amazing Ukrainian and American Anthems performed by Oleksiy Kuznetsov, the winner of the popular TV Show X-Factor, and Zlata Ognevich, one of the front-singers for the national Eurovision 2011 contest.
