Entertainment devoted to Day Without Barriers, organised by the Children's Foundation in Slovakia, will begin on Hlavné námestie at 16:00. The event symbolises the removal of barriers between slim and fat, big and small, black and white. Famous Slovak artists, singers and the children themselves will be the main entertainers. Meanwhile, the parade of costumed children will continue on to Františkánske námestie, where awards for the best costumes will be given. Organisers hope the day will go down in history by entering the Guinness Book of World Records for having the highest amount of people dressed in water sprite's costumes at one time.
