Child Protection Day in Yekaterinburg

On May 28 PAS Yekaterinburg organized an American cookie decoration workshop for local children and their families as part of the Child Protection Day festival at a major city landmark – Mayakovskiy Park for Culture and Leisure. The event, organized by the local expo company “Expert” brought together local food vendors and companies as well as numerous educational and cultural institutions to offer a wide range of workshops and activities, including theatrical performances, science shows, arts and crafts workshop and much more. This is the second time the consulate has cooperated with this festival.  Despite poor weather conditions, more than 40 people visited the U.S Consulate General tent and learned how to make a signature American signature desert – chocolate chip cookies.
