2017 Santa Claus parade in Minsk

The event, which gathered thousands of spectators in the center of Minsk on December 23: the New Year procession of Santa Clauses and Snow Maidens actually launched a string of New Year celebrations.

The main New Year characters in Belarus are Father Frost and Snow Maiden, his granddaughter. Father Frost has brought with him hundreds of other fairy-tale characters, all of whom took part in the magic procession.

Father Frost (Santa Claus):
I checked the list, all were very good. Get everything they wanted.

It is noteworthy that the main Santa Claus of Belarus and his granddaughter also brought a very powerful and unusual transport - MTZ tractors, which took part in the parade together with tens of Santas.

Tractors Belarus appeared before the eyes of spectators in such bright lights for the first time!

Father Frost (Santa Claus):
Every year, Grandfather receives more and more letters, and more and more gifts need to be given. A chariot of three horses is no longer able to cope with such a load. Therefore this year 1,200 horses will deliver gifts throughout Belarus!

The Snow Maiden:
The most important thing is to believe in miracles! Just behave, believe in a miracle, and all desires will be fulfilled next year.

The New Year procession of Father Frosts (Santas) is becoming a good tradition in Minsk. A noisy and cheerful column of fairy-tale assistants of Father Frost leaves from Independence Square straight to the Sports Palace. There are about 1000 fairy-tale characters, next to which are bears, which literally attract the attention of spectators thanks to their enormous sizes.
