A light show with musical accompaniment can be seen inside the ball.
On Poklonnaya Hill, a huge Christmas ball is being assembled. It will traditionally decorate Kutuzovsky Prospekt in winter. This was reported by the press service of the municipal economy complex.
One of the main New Year’s decorations of the city, 20 meters high, consists of 176 thousand LEDs. Its diameter is 17 meters, weight is about 35 tons, and the total length of the metal structure is five kilometers. Once inside, you can see a light show with musical accompaniment.
The ball is assembled in several stages: first, the lower and upper parts of the frame are separately mounted. Then, using a crane, they are combined and fastened with metal cables. They plan to complete the installation work in the coming days.
Before the winter holidays, more than 60 light structures will be installed on Poklonnaya Gora and Kutuzovsky Prospekt. A 25-meter spruce, voluminous dancing figures, light trees and stars will appear here. At the Arc de Triomphe, guests will be greeted by the light figures of Santa Claus and the Snow Maiden.
