EVER fancied taking a bath in extinguisher foam? Children in Majcichov got the chance on June 7, at the second annual celebration of Children's Day organised by local company Farma Majcichov, company spokesman Zoltán Kardhordó told The Slovak Spectator.

The event attracted about 800 children and their parents from around Majcichov, near Trnava. They were greeted by a magician and an exhibition of fire-fighting equipment. Firemen showed the children how the trapped victims of car accidents are freed from their vehicles and simulated a helicopter rescue operation. The climax of the programme was when the firemen made extinguisher foam for the children to play in.

Children were also able to take rides on horses and horse-drawn carriages, look at agricultural machinery, play on a bouncy castle, and explore a reconstructed farm. Finally, there was a children's raffle where everyone won a prize.
