Fabulous Family Day at the SIC Festival
In August 2019, the SIC Festival – Family Day, which is already an integral part of the festival, was very popular. Saturday’s program attracted more than six hundred families. The shade of the forests of Băile Şugaş is a pleasant and cosy place for families, where in addition to handicraft classes, music and fairy tales invited those who want to relax.
At the family celebration organized on the occasion of the 160th anniversary of the birth of Benedek Elek, the importance of raising children and returning to family values was emphasized. During the all-day program, while roaming the Fairy-tale Land, children and even families could collect apples from the rehearsals in the yard together with 27 interactive, skill and ability development sessions.
Éva Grüman, the main organizer of the Family Day, emphasized the importance of quality time spent playing. Now she really feel that the event has become a well-established program that parents and children are happy to visit.
“It feels good that we’ve managed to create an event over the years that fills a gap and that’s all about families. This year, adults were able to listen to interesting performances following today’s trends in partnership with the Şcoala Populară de Arte şi Meserii while the little ones were able to take part in various skills development sessions or games, getting even closer to the work of the great storyteller.”
