ArmInfo. This year, the metropolitan municipality decided to implement the new format of the Erebuni-Yerevan celebration. As deputy mayor Tigran Virabyan said at a press conference on October 10, festive events will be held in all administrative districts of the city on October 19.
Virabyan informed that the Municipality refused a traditional concert on Republic Square, having "distributed" concert venues throughout the capital. For example, jazz musicians are scheduled to perform in Davtashen, and rock musicians in Nubarashen. In addition, a festive event will be held at the Spendiarov National Academic Opera and Ballet Theater, in which the honorary citizens of Yerevan, Yervand Manaryan and Mikhail Piotrovsky, will be awarded.
In the evening, fireworks will be given simultaneously in all administrative regions.
According to Virabyan, this year it is planned to allocate 190 million drams from the budget for the celebration of "Erebuni-Yerevan". At the same time, according to him, for the first time in 10 years, not one company, but several will be involved in the organization of the festivities. All of them, as was noted, won the corresponding tender.
