Sanfermines for the Young at Heart: -!Menudas Fiestas!
The Plaza Conde Rodezno is the traditional stage for many different, fun activities for smallfry and the young at heart. Some 119,000 people attended the acts programmed for them in 2012. This year there will be 40 activities for the enjoyment of visitors and Pamplona´s families.
This Sanfermín setting opens on July 6th at 6 p.m. and will be available every day. Morning hours are from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. and from 6 to 9 p.m. in the evenings. The fun ends on the 14th of July at 9 p.m.
The idea is for participants to not only have fun but also take part in didactic activities to awaken imaginations and stimulate self-confidence through games. The Town Hall of Pamplona has hired Proeventos XXI and Ecoaventura to set up these events for the sum of 63. 767 euros.
Three areas in Conde Rodezno
Sanfermines in Conde Rodezno will be divided into three zones, organized by 54 specialized monitors for children from 0 to 17 years of age. Everyone will be able to enjoy tourist trains around the area and the Sky Dancers. Public restrooms will be available.
For children from three to 17 years of age, several areas on both sides of the fountain will host activities.

The part for the youngest participants will be called the “Baby Park” with a San Fermín beach., an area for nursing babies, the “Ludoteca pequepark”, the “Lago Aquadiver” and a small, electric train. There will also be loudspeakers to help find lost children.

There will also be a “boot camp challenger” for those between 6 and 7 years old. There will also be daily shows at 8 a.m. by Maese Villarejo and Gorgorito.
