A festival under the slogan “In the neighborhood” will take place this Saturday. It is worth taking part in it with families, children, friends and pets. Good fun is guaranteed! The program includes: a concert, bicycle point, tips from professionals and kite creation.

The 7th Neighborhood Family Festival

The Yellow Umbrella Association invites you to the 7th Neighborhood Family Festival, which runs all day on Saturday (May 23) and will start at 2 pm. This will be an open-air event, which will take place in Stanisław Tołpa Park on Nowowiejska Street.

When it comes to sports activities, you can count on the 2nd Ołbin Table Tennis Tournament and intergenerational football tournament. There will also be a dance group called 3 Dance.

When it comes to artistic events, Śpiewająca Zgraja will perform songs. There will be also face painting and a kite making workshop. As the Nadodrze and Ołbin districts are known for their craft shops, during the festival one should not miss the beekeeping and mountaineering workshops, as well as a bicycle point offering repair and advice.

Both children and parents will be attracted by the family atmosphere of the event. The youngest will get a specially arranged playroom, juggler and soap bubbles. It is unlikely anyone will say no to the cakes sold at the neighborhood fair and the competitions with prizes. For adults there will be free advice at the Ołbin Various Tips Point, featuring a lawyer, psychologist and nutritionist. Everyone is invited to the “In the neighborhood” Festival!

Fathers to start!

If you cannot visit the Tołpa Park, then you might consider a trip to the Osobowicki Forest between 11 am and 4 pm. “Fathers to start” is a sport competition to encourage active leisure time with the family, and in particular, to promote conscious fatherhood. The unique character of the competition is the active participation of children and parents.
