Children’s Day takes place in Cuba every year on the third Sunday of July. In the capital, these celebrations are held in Havana’s plazas and parks, together with its cultural centers, community centers, schools and neighborhood projects joined efforts so that children could have an exceptional weekend of their own.

The Afro-Cuban dance troupe of Callejon de Hamel, organized by Salvador Gonzalez Escalona, had a great reception.

Pavilion Cuba had two days of shows with clowns and educational games.

Likewise, the University of Havana undertook a theoretical-practical event, which —though related to the sciences— had experiments that children enjoyed.
