During the White Nights St. Petersburg there are numerous holidays and festivals. The brightest of them is the Graduates’ Day – the "Scarlet Sails". The tradition of celebrating the "Scarlet Sails" in St. Petersburg was restored in 2005. Over the years St. Petersburg "Scarlet Sails" have became not only a favorite holiday of the citizens, but also a unique event of an international level, a hallmark of St. Petersburg on the world stage. The structure of the festival: concerts on the Palace Square and the Spit of Vasilyevsky Island and a multimedia show on the Neva River. The audience of the festival each year varies from 2 to 3 million people, a number unprecedented for any European event.
