Rainbow Land and its wide collection of assorted events will be especially interesting for kids and their company of all ages.
Little athletes can visit the Vodomček obstacle course, water games, relay races, outdoor fitness, and dance classes. If they’d prefer to spend their time more calmly, open air library, for little ladies a mini wellness pampering and a hairdresser’s salon, and face painting will be available as well. Artistic souls will enjoy puppet shows and theatre plays, and little artists will be able to paint on shirts, colour rainbow colouring books, visit jewellery workshops, or they could join the forest princes.
Several times a day from Thursday to Sunday the kids will get a special visit from Domči Balonči and Vodomček!
As always, a part of the Rainbow Land will be the Mini Express train that will drive kids and their parents all over the Rainbow Land, as well as among all Pivo in Cvetje Festival visitors. It will also join the traditional Sunday Parade. Mini Express is a train composition on an electric (battery) drive for the transport of children and adults. It is quiet, economical and environmentally friendly. It can accommodate up to 24 children or about 18 children and adults. The composition of the locomotive and the four wagons moves on the trackless tires.

THE PRINCESS AND THE PEA, a puppet show

Esmeralda, the owner of a traveling comedian group has her hands full with training new assistants, Antonio and Serafine. They tried rope walking and juggling and it was a complete disaster, they can’t do somersaults yet… What will she do with them?! They do, however, say they can play with puppets. Apparently they practiced The Princess and the Pee. Oh sorry – and the Pea! Let’s watch a story about a prince trying to find the right bride …
The show was inspired by the motives of Hans Christian Andersen’s eponymous story, and talks about waiting for what we truly want, and take nothing less instead. Because, where there’s goodness, there’s love.
The poetics of our puppet show comes from over a hundred-year-old travel suitcase that opens a way of story-telling from fairs and markets from that time to the audience …
