20170813 49 Sun 13.8 13:00 - Family Sunday
For several years, Flow Festival has wanted to take into consideration festival guests with children by arranging Family Sunday. On Sunday, adults who have bought a ticket may bring along children under the age of ten to the festival area to feel the festival buzz, play, and enjoy music. The Family Sunday has been a popular event every year, and this year the little festival visitors’ program has received special attention.
To ensure children’s safety, an adult must take care that younger guests leave the area by 6pm. During the Family Sunday baby carriages and strollers can be brought along to the festival area, as well as children’s food and supplies. Please ensure proper hearing protection for children during the festival. You may either bring your own earmuffs or purchase some at the Festival area.

PENNANT WORKSHOP AND A FRIENDSHIP STREAMER
13.00 – 15.00
Let’s celebrate friendship together! What is friendship and how does it feel? And what does it look like? Is it silky smooth or soft and fluffy? Is it yellow, pink, red or all of the colours?
