The General Mayor of Bucharest, Sorin Oprescu, has announced on Friday that the municipality will organize again the New Year’s Eve party in Constitution Square.
“We want it to be, as every year, a surprise in Constitution Square. There will be music and artists for all ages,” said Oprescu as quoted by Agerpres.
The mayor has made the announcement during the official launch of the photo album entitled “Bucharest seen through your eyes”.
The Constitution Square has become the New Year’s Eve highlight for dozens of thousands of Bucharesters, as they choose to enter the New Year partying there, in front of the House of People, enjoying the impressive fireworks and the concerts performed by famous Romanian names.
Another New Year’s Eve party which used to be organized each year for over a decade, the Vanghelion, was the one thrown by the mayor of the 5th district of the Capital City, Marian Vanghelie. Nevertheless, he has recently announced that he won’t organize the party this year anymore, arguing he was too preoccupied with politics and had no time to organize the Vanghelion. The party thrown by Marian Vanghelie had its first edition in 2001 and was interrupted in 2009 and 2010 due to the economic crisis.
