Chinese and Russian families gathered at the Russian Cultural Center in Beijing on April 12 to celebrate the 56th anniversary of cosmonaut Yury Gagarin's first manned flight into outer space.

During the Space Festival event, organizers invited children, their parents and other participants from the media, to present flowers to a sculpture of Gagarin at the entrance of the center.

Participants of the event later released balloons into the sky to express hope for exploring the universe. They also visited an exhibition entitled "Universe and Human" which included paintings by Russian artists Vladimir Vinogradov and Liudmila Victorova and listened to a concert by folk music band O. Lundstrom.
