The Scarlet Sails is more than just a sailing ship with red sails. After the end of World War II, a tradition started up to celebrate the end of the school year. It was based on the adventure story written by Alexander Grin in 1922. The tradition has become a huge public event with fireworks and music ... and a ship with scarlet sails. The entertainment is all free, provided by the city of St Petersburg in Russia.
