An event was held in Bishkek, which was attended by a huge number of Bishkek residents and guests of the capital. The mayor's office, with the assistance of the Head of the Department of Culture and Art of the International Public Association "Generals of the World - for Peace" Vladimir Vladimirovich Belkin, who directed the concert program of this holiday, gathered an excellent composition of musical and creative folk groups.
