The VI Campiña Sur Children’s Fair will be held on the first weekend of June, organized by the Llerena City Council with the collaboration of the Badajoz Provincial Council.
The Councilor for Culture, Tourism and Celebrations of Llerena, Juan Carlos Jiménez, today presented the program for this fair that is dedicated not only to the little ones, but to the whole family.
The activities will take place in the fairgrounds with four specific areas: promotion of imagination and creativity (workshops on balloon twisting, badges, funny English, crafts, soap bubbles and magic); environmental education (garden workshops, eco-fun and recycling, hooking circuit, photocall, pony ride, nature stand and picnic with animals); health promotion (gynkhana, children’s paintball, climbing wall, zip line, American track, pedal go-kart circuit, ping pong, popular games, archery, treasure hunt, minigolf and inflatables); and promotion of civic education (participation of the Regional Fire Department, workshops at the Historical Museum of Llerena and a photocall with local historical figures).
Jiménez explained that a large part of the programming has been proposed by the children. “We want, through play, to promote satisfactory experiences,” he said.
The deputy for Culture and Sports, Francisco Martos, recalled the recognition of Llerena as a ‘City of Children’ by UNICEF. “The town takes care of the future from the present with initiatives that join DIVERSUR, such as the creation of the Children’s Room of the Historical Museum, the Children’s Village, or the Children’s Municipal Corporation,” he stressed.
