Moscow is celebrating its 865th anniversary this year. The capital city has grown considerably with additions of new territories, and the brand new Muscovites are also participating in Moscow's "happy birthday" events. 

      Among the highlights of September 1 events are the Art Boulevards, uniting Petrovsky, Neglinny, Tsvetnoy, and Rozhdestvensky Boulevards. There visitors will see the French artistic and literary displays (Petrovsky Blvd), take part in family events (Tsvetnoy Blvd), enjoy the crafts (Neglinny Blvd), and learn about the latest tendencies in visual arts, fashion and design (Rozhdestvensky Blvd). 

      The VDNKh area will all be dedicated to the pop culture festival: young graffiti makers, skaters, bitboxers, and photographers will celebrate Moscow as the best city on Earth. 

      The concert "Moscow Broadway" will start at 8pm in Pushkinskaya Square where extracts from musicals will be presented to the public, including Mamma Mia!, The Cats, Zorro, The Sound of Music, and others.

      Sport events will take place at the Olympic Stadium in Luzhniki and in Teatralnaya Square. The latter place will see the competition among waiters, as well as performances from the Guinness Book record holders from Russia and Ukraine. 

      More shows are scattered around the city centre, including the "Moscow local carnival" in Academician Sakharov Prospect where people will be entertained by Russian performers. The event will be attended by amdassadors of countries where carnival traditions flourish to this day: Brazil, China, Cuba, Argentina, and Mexico. 

      And the Yuri Nikulin State Circus in Tsvetnoi Boulevard will have its clowns, performers, acrobats, and animals entertain the crowd right in the street. 

      The sales of alcohol drinks are banned for the weekend, and no drink will be available in glass containers, to avoid incidents. 

      The traditional festive fireworks will take place in several places in Moscow and the newly added territories.
