The original festival is the White night festival held in St. Petersburg, Russia. The white nights is the name given in areas of high latitude to the weeks around the summer solstice in June during which sunsets are late, sunrises are early and darkness is never complete. In St. Petersburg, the Sun does not set until after 10 p.m., and the twilight lasts almost all night.
The White nights festival in Saint Petersburg is famous for spectacular fireworks and Scarlet Sails, a massive show celebrating the end of school year. A series of shows, ballets and carnivals take place during the White Nights Festival in St. Petersburg.
