April 23 national sovereignty and children's day, which we celebrate every year with pride and enthusiastic events, continues to host colorful events in different points of our various cities. Let's take a look at some outdoor events and competitions that will be held this year for the April 23 holiday, which is celebrated with festive ceremonies with the arrival of children from abroad in some years.
