Ukrainian Independence Day, year 2

Last year — 2011 — was the 20th anniversary of Ukraine’s independence, so the 24th of August was a huge day filled with celebrations: I sang with the teachers’ choir, Sniatyn’s parade was huge, and concerts went on into the evening. This year, the 21st Independence Day, was a bit more modest. My boyfriend was with me in Sniatyn so we watched the (modest-sized) parade and checked out a few singing and dance performances in the center of town. I’ll let the videos and pictures give you an idea of the celebrations:
