The Porto Moniz City Council announced today a campaign, as part of the celebration of World Children’s Day, which provides families with children aged 12 years or less with free entry to the Madeira Aquarium.
The initiative arose, according to the mayor’s office, due to the impossibility of jointly celebrating World Children’s Day, as the executive usually does, “Every year we bring our children together in order to mark this day”, said Emanuel Câmara, Mayor of Porto Moniz.
“It is also on this day that we usually hoist the Blue Flag, an award that our swimming pools have displayed for 25 years, and this is also a time when we make sure that our children are present, not only because of the awareness for the conservation of the environment, but also because this award belongs to them ”.
This year, and due to the impossibility of celebrating in the usual way, the Municipality of Porto Moniz moved forward with a campaign to offer tickets to the Madeira Aquarium to all families who are accompanied by children aged 12 or under, with the objective of returning to that infrastructure the dynamics it had before the pandemic appeared.
Emanuel Câmara points out that “the campaign is not only aimed at residents of Porto Moniz” and states that “this is another way to support local traders, and bring more movement to the municipality since the airport has not yet returned to normality, which results in the non-entry of tourists in the Region and causes a significant decrease in the movement in the commercial establishments of Porto Moniz. With this measure, we are, in practical terms, trying to attract visitors to our municipality. ”
The initiative lasts until June 30, during which time all children who visit that infrastructure will be treated to a treat.
