CALPE town hall recently presented its programme for 2020’s Family Day.
Family Day was introduced in Calpe in 2018 and following its popularity in 2019, the local government decided to repeat the initiative. Rather than a single day, this year’s programme covers 12 days spread over the year, explained Rebeca Merchan, Education and Youth councillor.
All the activities, which are accompanied by elevenses or tea for the children, are free and include traditional games, theatrical performances, sports of all descriptions, a water fiesta and an escape room session. According to statistics from the town hall’s Youth department, more than 4,000 young people took part in last year’s Family Day.
“This year we wanted to include a large number of activities that all family members can enjoy,” Merchan said. “We are very satisfied with the way that Family Day was received last year and we are sure that families are going to like the activities we have planned for this year,” she added.
