The street festival will take place from December 28th, 2017, to January 1st, 2018. Hotels and restaurants in the Lakeside area have been decorated with ribbons, flyers and banners to welcome tourists and the New Year.

Most of the hotels have been booked fully and entrepreneurs say that finding a room in the last moment would be extremely tough. While the city is planning to bring 500,000 internal tourists, the hotels at Lakeside have only 22,000 rooms.
