The atmosphere of the end-of-year holidays can be felt everywhere in Tirana. After the lights of the New Year tree were turned on at the New Bazaar, then at the Tirana Castle and in "Skënderbej" Square, now it is the turn of the Lake Park to dress in the colors of the holidays.

Under the rhythms of music and joyful songs of the end of the year surrounded by many children, the mayor Erion Veliaj said that the condition for a city to do well is for everyone to cooperate with each other.

"The only contagion that can hold together over 1 million people living in Tirana, is cooperation. The city is like a child that must be raised with love. Sometimes you have to make strict but fair decisions, to grow in "the moment everyone contributes to the city becoming better, we can really have a much better city than we found. Let the new generation leave a much better city," said Veliaj.

The mayor recalled the time when a part of the Lake Park was occupied and protested, while today this space is one of the main attractions of the city.

"When we first opened the tree here at the lake, 6 years ago, the whole shore there was occupied. There were about 100 illegal buildings, plastic was burning, garbage was being collected. I understand, all those people who say do not touch me , but if we do not touch anything at home, how are things fixed? The man gives up and then things are fixed. I remember that we fought the first battle in this lake for the children. "Some good jobs we just have to let happen ?!", said Veliaj.
