The programme of Silver Sunday on 17 December will be prepared on 17 November Square. The Hokus Pokus choir will perform there. You can look forward to a Christmas fairy tale, performances by pupils of the Rožmital ZUŠ, a concert Christmas on the Orbital Railway, markets and angels on stilts. As the organizers say, don't forget to bring a sparkler, again there will be a group photo with as many lit sparklers as possible.

On Golden Sunday, Christmas Eve, a shepherd's carriage will be driving through the streets of the city from 10am to 1pm.

Letterbox for Santa Claus

This year, a letter box for Santa Claus is installed in the 17th November Square to collect wishes and joys of children during the Christmas season. Every little letter or picture that the children put in the box becomes a magical message for Santa Claus himself.
