The Zoo celebrates the 11th edition of ‘Dreamnight at the Zoo’
The Barcelona Zoo has invited some 50 kids to spend a very special evening at the park with their families
This Friday, the Zoo is hosting the eleventh edition of ‘Dreamnight at the Zoo’, a charity event at which the Zoo invites boys and girls suffering from chronic diseases or disabilities, who are receiving treatment at hospitals in Barcelona or surrounding towns, to a special evening at the Zoo. The children, accompanied by their families, Zoo volunteers and collaborating companies, can enjoy a unique experience, with the Zoo grounds closed and exclusively for these kids after 6.30 pm.
This experience consists of a guided tour through the Zoo’s facilities, different workshops and a tea-dinner. The party will have live entertainment at the hands of the Pallapupas clowns, magicians from the Spanish Magic Society and the animation group De Moment Fantàstics. All people and companies participating at the event are doing so voluntarily and free of charge.
‘Dreamnight at the Zoo’ is an initiative that was started at the Rotterdam Zoo (Holland) in 1996, and has been joined by 282 other zoos in 39 different countries. This is the eleventh consecutive year that the Barcelona Zoo has participated, and in 2016 nearly a half million people participated in Dreamnight at zoos around the world.
