Our problem was to look, as the feast is organised, after all it here is spent since 1762. The special concept or ideology at a carnival is not present. The Most important thing - wide participation in action of Dubliners and city visitors. We have paid attention to the carnival organisation: installation of protections, maintenance of public security during procession, its duration. We will adopt experience. This year we will try to make so that it was more convenient to inhabitants of Irkutsk to observe of colourful parade.

First of all works will increase the policeman. The cordon all - taki is necessary. Spectators run out often on proezzhuju a part where there is a column, and disturb to participants.

Procession will pass from « the Irkutsk large village » along the street Lenin to square of a name of Kirov.
