Denizens erupted in joy as they celebrated the onset of 2017, the New Year, during celebration events organised at various venues in and around the city.
Along with all other organisations like hotels and event management firms, the Vijayawada Municipal Corporation joined the race this year and organised celebrations on M.G. Road outside the Indira Gandhi Municipal Corporation Stadium. The Corporation made elaborate arrangements as the Chief Minister is scheduled to take part and cut a cake in the midnight.
The show was anchored by actor Hariteja.
At the Vijayawada Club, the celebrations touched a peak with the performances of classical dancer Koteswari Kanna with hula hoop and Russian performers. Tollywood singers Kalpana, known for breathless singing, and Dhanunjay mesmerised the participants.
Minister Kamineni Srinivas, about 3,000 persons, including club members and their families took part in the celebrations.
