Children's Day in GUM
"Where is childhood... And how can we find a way to get back there?" – are the lines of the famous Russian song. We reveal the secret: they answered this question in GUM on June 1st. Adults could come back to childhood for one day and kids plunged into games and entertainments. Especially since there were plenty of them: spectacular jumps and supports from the acrobats of the Great Moscow State Circus, bright jugglers and clowns, funny quest "The Jungle Book", keepsake photos with parrots, a peacock and a leopard, dance lessons, children's movies and cartoons in the GUM-Cinema.
Kids took active part in competitions directly at GUM lines, they ran and jumped together with our entertaining team and parents could barely keep up with their offsprings to make a shot of all their exploits. However, the young reporters from the Piccolo magazine chronicled the details of the events.
This year, the little guests set off on an incredible journey through the pages of the familiar and favorite "The Jungle Book". Exotic palm trees whispered at the 1st GUM line and everyone was happy to enjoy the famous GUM ice cream under their huge shady heads.
The most complicated & interesting tasks were prepared for the kids within "The Jungle Book" quest, which was conducted at GUM lines: experienced “pathfinders” were waiting for the kids at special "stations". The guests of the holiday went to "At the Fountain" café & Stolovaya № 57, to Bosco Cafe & Bosco Fresh & Bar to accumulate strength for the new victories.
Artists of the Great Moscow State Circus - jugglers, acrobats, clowns and balancers - showed their skills to the loud applause right under the GUM dome at the fountain.
The kids tinkered gifts for their parents and friends within creative work-shops, danced together with Eugeny Papunaishvili and the teachers of his School of Dance. They mastered not only modern directions, but also remembered the favorite Macarena and the Dance of Small Ducklings.
Charming rabbit Piglette became the guest of the Children’s Day in GUM.
Children's movies and cartoons were screened in the GUM-Cinema during the day, counters to ride the merry-go-round were handed out to the guests with children in Stolovaya No 57. Rides, gifts from Kidzaniya and more - everyone found something to do.
