MOSCOW, June 2 (RIA Novosti) - A mock military parade to mark the Children’s Day in North Korea on Saturday: kids were dressed in miniature replicas of military uniforms and drove toy cars made to look like tanks and rocket launchers, Sky News reported.

Children also competed in building models of North Korea's rocket, which launched a satellite into orbit last year and shot arrows at targets made to look like US soldiers.

About 3,000 children took part in the celebrations organized in the Mangyongdae amusement park, revamped after North Korean leader Kim Jong-un criticized its dilapidated state last year. The event was attended by senior North Korean officials.

Like many countries, North Korea traditionally marks Children's Day on June 1. A similar holiday, headlined International Day for Protection of Children, is observed in Russia on the same day.
