And a new trend is emerging in the city, too: painted rocks.

The brightly painted rocks – some bearing messages of thanks; others simply spreading cheer – have started to appear on boulevards, in gardens and in public greenspaces of the city.

On top of that, windows around town – both businesses and homes - feature a variety of teddy bears, art and all manner of cheering messages.
