For the ninth consecutive year, next weekend (9 and 10 June) we are celebrating A Day of Clown Noses with the NGO Pallapupas with the aim of showcasing the important work these hospital clowns are doing, and to raise funds. The Zoo will fill up with clowns and laughter simultaneously, with five educational and leisure centres, as well as offering half price tickets. Part of the funds raised will be donated to help the Pallapupas in their work.
Tickets can only be bought in advance at the Pallapupas website except for members of the Super3 Club, whose entry is free with the purchase of a solidarity nose for €4 and showing your Super3 card on the 9th or 10th at Zoo entrances.
The Pallapupas will visit all the spaces where we are celebrating Clown Day and will surely make both young and old have an unforgettable and incredible day!
To publicise this great festival, the Pallapupas encourage everybody to create a huge ‘wave of noses’ on social media, sharing your photos wearing a clown nose and the hashtags #nasvermell and #mareadenassos.
The Pallapupas, hospital clowns, think humour is the fundamental tool to handle the adverse situations that people live during their struggles with diseases, and they accompany patients of all ages going through very difficult times in the hospital, showcasing their strength: theatre.
This weekend come to the Zoo and put on your red nose in solidarity with the children hospitalised in our city!
