Tibidabo celebrates the first Smoke Free Party
It will be held on 3 June, and is the main event of the ‘Smoke Free Week’, an initiative of the Spanish Society of Family and Community Medicine, of which the Park is a member
Tibidabo Amusement Park is celebrating the smoke-free party, with the objective of raising visitors’ awareness on how important it is not to smoke. The Park has joined—along with other businesses and associations—the Smoke Free Week, an initiative of the Spanish Society of Family and Community Medicine. The main event, which will start at 10.45 am at the main entrance to the Park, will include representatives from the Catalan Institute of Oncology (ICO) and Sant Joan de Déu Hospital, also involved in this day.
At the event, Tibidabo’s new slogan will be presented ‘Fill your lungs with life and get carried away by emotion’ in line with the values of a healthy lifestyle without any tobacco. This slogan was selected from among the 31 proposals presented during the ‘Smoke Free Class’, a prevention programme that the Barcelona Public Health Agency (ASPB) does each year among the pupils at the French Leisure Association in Barcelona. The prizes for the drawing competition based on the Smoke Free Week will also be awarded, which will be exhibited at the Park throughout the week.
The participation of the ICO and Sant Joan de Déu Hospital will consist of their doing activities to raise awareness via lung age tests and carboximetres (measuring the content of carbon monoxide in the air exhaled). Boys and girls can also can also take a game disc workshop that they can personalise with images and drawings of healthy habits, and they will have an interactive game in which they have to identify which are healthy habits and which damage our health.
The Smoke Free Party will be completed with different activities throughout the day, during which highlights include a batucada, by the group Piusao, and a group Zumba class in Dream Square. Moreover the Park will reinforce—via strolling animated characters—the dissemination of this positive message for living with healthy habits.
