Barcelona Zoo and Tibidabo Amusement Park celebrate a "Day of Noses"
The festival is held on 9 and 10 June in aid of the hospital clowns charity "Pallapupas"
Next weekend, 9 and 10 June, the festival "Un dia de Nassos” (A Day of Noses), organised in partnership with "Pallapupas", will be held at Barcelona Zoo and Tibidabo Amusement Park. It is a charity event where everyone from the youngest children to adults can enjoy a day full of laughter and surprises, while at the same time learning about the importance of humour as a means of improving the emotional state of children in hospital and their families.
Half-price charity tickets can be purchased in advance, exclusively via the Pallapupas website. Part of the proceeds will go towards this organisation.
Pallapupas is a non-profit organisation, run by professional actors and actresses and formed in the year 2000, which helps patients and their families to do something positive by means of humour and drama, in order to improve their mood and help their personal development during their illness.
The work of Pallapupas has reached some 40,000 people in Catalonia: children who are in hospital, adults diagnosed with cancer, elderly people and people diagnosed with various types of mental disorder. It also helps the relatives of the patients to get through the illness and assists nursing and medical staff with facilitating their care work in 12 hospitals around Catalonia.

On 9 June, Tibidabo Amusement Park will also be part of the 8th “Simfònic” Festival.
