The meteorological defense of Moscow for City Day festivities will be conducted from 06:00 a.m. to 24:00 p.m. About 10 aircraft with special equipment will be used, Moscow 24 reports.

This year, Moscow's birthday will be celebrated mostly with cultural and sporting events. The grand opening of the City Day will be held on September 1 at 12:00 pm on Red Square. The participants of "Spasskaya Tower" festival of military orchestras will march on Tverskaya Street.
