PIK-NIK 2021

As usual, KASPIAN organized a community event called PIK-NIK, which people from the local community in Petržalka and the wider public could enjoy.

This year, the event took place on a sunny Saturday afternoon, on September 4, 2021, on Furdekova street.

Both adults and children, families with kids, and even grandparents attended the PIK-NIK. Over 200 visitors came to enjoy the family atmosphere and spend time with their neighbors, friends, and acquaintances.

For children, creative workshops were prepared where they could make lanterns or bracelets with the help of our volunteers – Adi and Katka. The big inflatable castle also caught attention and was fully occupied during the event. The sporting spirit was also visible in table tennis, football, and slackline competitions. Giant board games like Connect Four or life-size Tic-Tac-Toe added to the playful atmosphere.

The skilled moderator Martin Žák, who grew up in Petržalka and had a strong affection for it, engaged people throughout the whole event. He also prepared an interesting play “About a Spoon from Banská Štiavnica” for the youngest visitors.

Throughout the day, the talented band Majdur&band played their own songs on the double bass, cimbalom, guitars, and viola, adding to the festive atmosphere.

Mothers with the youngest children had access to 10 stations with proven Montessori activities, which were verypopular. The grand finale of our program was an attractive light show by artists from Anta Agni.

But that wasn’t all! Visitors could choose from tasty refreshments in our food zone throughout the whole event. We offered hot dogs, various pastries, grilled cheese, and hermelin cheese. Visitors could also enjoy fresh fruit or refresh themselves with lemonades completely for free. We know that everyone enjoyed the food because we sold almost everything. Our friends from “Café Mobil” prepared excellent coffee for us throughout the whole Saturday, as usual.

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to our partners, especially LIDL Slovakia, the ZSE Foundation, the City of Bratislava, and Heineken, without whose support PIK-NIK 2021 would not have been as great as it was.

We also don’t forget our volunteers who took care of the event from the beginning to the end, making sure that everything went smoothly. We would like to thank our photographer Lucia Cabajova, who not only took pictures but also captured moments of the irreplaceable atmosphere that accompanied the PIK-NIK throughout the day. Thank you, without you, it wouldn’t be possible.
