May kids: Time to get the busy bees outdoors

BØRNEFESTIBAL

May 23, 11:00-18:00; Østre Anlæg, Stockholmsgade, Cph Ø; free adm

SPEND a day at BørnefestiBal, a free children’s festival jam-packed with activities for kids of all ages.

The entertainment has been arranged in a chronological fashion so the toddlers’ needs (ages 0-3) are seen to first, over the first couple of hours, followed by those of the kindergarten-aged kids (ages 4-7) around the middle of the day, and then finally school-age kids (8 and above) later in the day.
It includes the mascots of the DFDS Oslo-Copenhagen ferry route and their treasure hunt (only from 12:30 to 14:30). Handing in your answers enters you into the prize draw of winning a family trip on the ferry, thereby giving you the opportunity to try another treasure hunt at sea.

Another competition will then be held in the Plan Danmarks teddy tent, where drawing your favourite cuddly toy enters you into a prize draw to win one of their 1,000 cuddly toys. Don’t be deterred if you find a teddy bear you just have to have and don’t manage to win it – they are also selling them at festival prices to help children in poor countries.

Elsewhere, Rynke, the orangutan from the Rynkeby juice adverts, will teach everyone how to dance the Rynke; Benneweis will show off some of their impressive circus acts; and Legefabrikken’s pirates will also make an appearance.

If that’s not enough, there’s free Donald Duck comics, colouring books, balloon animals, magic tricks, face paint and much more.

  • Internationals in Denmark rarely join a trade union

    Internationals in Denmark rarely join a trade union

    Internationals are overrepresented in the lowest-paid fields of agriculture, transport, cleaning, hotels and restaurants, and construction – industries that classically lack collective agreements. A new analysis from the Workers’ Union’s Business Council suggests that internationals rarely join trade unions – but if they did, it would generate better industry standards.
