Immersing yourself in a mysterious jungle, painting recycled water bottles, taking part in a cart race, jumping on trampolines, playing on “Planet Basketball”, cooking fruit and vegetables, travelling through virtual settings, becoming a firefighter for a day, scaling artificial climbing walls and taking part in juggling, magic and circus workshops, are just some of the many activities you’ll be able to do at the Children’s Festival, which is being held from 27 December to 4 January at Fira de Barcelona’s Montjuïc site. This year’s event will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Convention on Children’s Rights.
Sport will be one of the Festival’s pillars. Children will find areas for playing football, basketball, climbing, skating, hockey, Olympic shooting, cycling, cart racing, athletics and taekwondo. Other highlights in the programme include game activities, such as merry-go-rounds, trampolines and games of every kind, plus shows, with this years featuring performances by clowns, magicians, storytellers, puppets, children’s theatre, human castle makers and Bollywood artists.
Children’s rights will have a place in several of the festival’s activities, which will be promoting creativity and solidarity among children in a playful and educational way, as well as encouraging sport, physical activities and healthy eating habits, instilling values such as respecting diversity, integration, healthy coexistence and looking after the environment.
