Despite a grey sky over the Festningen fortress on Saturday afternoon, Juba Juba children’s festival is humming with voices of small participants, artists, clowns and all kinds of activities.
We head towards the Adressaavisen tent where everybody can get on the front page of issue special issue of the newspaper and take it home! My one year old son is eager to try drawing on the textile tote bag. A memory that one can use after the festival has finished. Various tents offer all kinds of creative workshops – final products stay in hands of little participants who can take them home and use!
There is a buttons workshop at art museum tent, an apocalyptic workshop lets kids’ fantasy fly free. Chilfren can make objects of recycled everyday objects and materials, and many more.Now we head to literature tent to hear the readings, and end up at music tent listening to “9 grader nord”. Bubbles, balloons and music all fit well together!We will definitely come back next year, when the little one will have more skills to fully participate in the festival.Fortunately, there are many activities for the smallest ones, too, including the toddler tent. And, of course, a fun of experiencing an event!
