The most loved bear cub in Denmark, Rasmus Klump (also known as Petzi, Pol and Barnaby Bear), is turning 65 years old.



Rasmus Klump, which is also the name of the comic strip series, has his own house in Tivoli now, where he mingles with kids every day.

On Rasmus Klump Day, children are invited to dress up as their favourite figures and come to the bear’s party held in his garden.

Sing, dance and play with the beloved characters from the cartoon.

There will also be a drawing competition, a reading corner, a badge-making corner and a fish pond. (JQ)
