Town Hall promises busy summer of fun for all


Among the highlights of the Town Hall’s summer programme is the second edition of the “Exotic Gardens Celebrate,” on June 2 and 3, with a programme of many activities for children including pony rides, a great interactive game … and for families, the chance to visit the greenhouses of the new Botanical Centre in the form of four guided tours per day (on advance registration).

The annual Fête de la Musique celebration, takes place on June 21 with many concerts in town throughout the day and with a big free concert on the Port of Monaco at 9 pm with Naâman, a young artist in the new reggae scene in France.

The third edition of the Splash Party on Monday, July 2, takes place with a novelty this year: the 12-17 year-olds who are schooled or resident in the Principality will meet at the Stade Nautique Rainier III, not in the evening as usual but in the afternoon between 3 and 7 pm.

Later, Les Musicales will take place from July 4 to August 22 with a concert every Wednesday from 7:30 pm to 10 pm (except on July 25), offering a show dedicated to children at Square Gastaud in varied styles, like bossa, gypsy, jazz, swing, rock and Brazilian music.

The International Fireworks Competition becomes Monaco Art en Ciel, although the new name for this flagship event of Monaco’s summers doesn’t change any other feature of the series of four firework displays on the Port, each one staged by a different country.
