A Special Invitation to Russia Blog readers in Moscow!

This event will feature live music, spectacular fireworks, a huge cake from the Moscow Radisson SAS hotel, raffle prizes and games for children.
Getting to the Party
A free shuttle bus will take guests to and from the Ryazansky Prospekt metro station on the Tagansko-Krasnopresnenskaya_Line (purple) line beginning at 3 p.m. and running until midnight on Saturday, July 5. The bus will pick up and drop off passengers just past the city bus stop. (Exit the metro toward the last car of the train as it travels from the center.)
IMPORTANT - Purchasing Tickets at the Gate
For those who did not purchase a ticket in advance, tickets are just $17 (400 rubles) at the gate for adults entering from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Kids under the age of 12 get in free. After 7 p.m. only advance ticket holders will be admitted to the grounds.
