Hot air balloon to celebrate children’s rights

By Stephanie Horsman - November 12, 2019

Monaco will host a day of fun activities for the kids as part of celebrations for the International Day of the Rights of the Child.

The Department of National Education, Youth, and Sports inflated a hot air balloon in front of the Grimaldi Forum this week signalling the upcoming event. It was attended by local schoolchildren and curious crowds.

20th November, the actual day of the event, will see the Grimaldi Forum converted into a massive play area reserved for kids three to 13 years old, where from 11:30am to 7:30pm there will be a host of activities such as creative workshops, games, bouncy castles, an escape room and food stalls. Entry fee is €5.

A charity concert by singer and impressionist Michaël Grégorio at the Grimaldi Forum will end the day’s festivities. The concert begins at 7:30pm and ticket are on sale at www.grimaldiforum.com starting at €39.

Badges with “I take part in the Day of the Rights of the Child” are also currently being sold at all local schools in anticipation of the event.

International Day of the Rights of the Child was created to coincide with Universal Child’s Day in 1990 by the United Nations General Assembly. The day offers adults and children alike the opportunity to advocate, promote and celebrate children and their rights, allowing for discussions and actions to create a better world for kids.  

All proceeds from the event will be given to local charitable organisations who work with children in vulnerable situations or whose rights are being violated.
