Yes, the holiday was successful! I saddened everything only one small shortcoming - citizens on this event could, and had to be more!
And time was picked up successfully, and weather had, but none of simple citizens didn't know about this action.
What to speak about citizens when even journalists managed to learn exact time of this action hardly.

In a telephone mode, on August 6, in a press - to service YEAH reported that about such fact, in general, know nothing.
In management for physical culture and sports YEAH gave phone of the official who is responsible for the organization of this action to which, it is simple on simply, it wasn't succeeded to phone. Nobody raised a tube.
