The European Commission in Athens is marking several anniversaries of European significance on Saturday at an open event at Zappeion Megaron in Athens on May 11, according to ANA.

The event commemorates the EU's expansion by ten new member states on May 1, 2004, as well as the 69th anniversary of the Schuman Declaration by French Foreign Minister Robert Schuman on 9 May 1950 that proposed to place French and German production of coal and steel under one common European authority.

The celebration honors the 40th anniversary of the signing of Greece's treaty of EU accession on May 28 1979, and the upcoming May 26 European elections

It includes music, singing, acting, games, gift raffles, and a concert with singer Marina Sati as guest start and the City of Athens Philharmonic orchestra. 

The event will be broadcast live on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/events/394752871374673/ and will also be covered by Open TV & Rise TV channels.
