YEREVAN, Armenia – Fed up with the cold, a group of students took matters into their own hands and held a celebration flashmob to welcome spring.

On the last day of February, a group of students gathered in Cascade Park in Yerevan to hurry spring along. They were ready and willing to say bye-bye to winter.

“In the last few days, the weather is not good enough. We want spring to come quickly, so decided to organize this event,” said Miqayel Voskanyan, one of the organizers of the <<BYEBYE WINTER, HELLO SPRING>> flashmob.

During the flashmob, young people, many of them my fellow students, walked along the central streets of Yerevan.

We held colorful balloons in our hands and sang songs about spring.


That was really wonderful. Even the cold didn’t keep us from having a good time.
