Fun Events For Children’s Day In Lagos

Children are the future of any generation, an important part of the society. In a bid to honor them, the UN General Assembly recommended that all countries maintain a universal Children’s Day on an ‘appropriate’ day. 

Most countries celebrate Children’s Day on the 20th of November every year whereas countries such as Nigeria and India celebrate Children’s day on the 27th of May annually.

  1. Really what an amazing obstacle bouncy castles are. After seeing that I'm wishing that if I could go back to my childhood then I can also enjoy this rides. But we don't need to get very upset because if you visit gold coast jumping castle hire here you'll get the large size jumping castles for adults and you can hire it very easily. Also hiring cost is very low that you won't believe.
