MUSEUM NIGHT, 5k FUN RUN and BARCA vs ATLETICO
LA NIT DELS MUSEUMS
WHEN: Sat 17 May from 19h00 – Sun 18 May 01h00
WHERE: Museums and cultural centers across Barcelona
WHAT: Free entrance to museums
Visiting museums usually forms part of most people’s holidays – whether it be natural history museums, art museums, science museums, these establishments have always captivated our interest since they show us more about where we come from, and sometimes where we are going! Many great museums exist in Barcelona, and if you live here you most probably have seen many of them. However they can become quite busy during the day. This is why La Nit dels Museums was established, offering one the change to visit over 60 museums and cultural centers, absolutely free of charge and at night time! Over 100,000 people visit this event every year and it includes poetry readings, concerts, performances and much more. For more information on the full program, check out the website
THE COLOR RUN
WHEN: Sunday 18 May
WHERE: Starting at Ave. de la Reina Maria Cristina (see map)
WHAT: A 5k Fun Run
Labelled as the “Happiest 5k run on the planet”, the Color Run is a 5 kilometer un-timed race. Thousands of participants (or “color runners”) are covered in different colors paint from top to bottom at every kilometer. The aim of this fun run is to promote happiness and healthy by bringing people together for this fun event. It was initially started in America but soon spread to more than 30 countries. The idea is quite simple: start the race off by wearing all white clothing and finish the race covered in as many colors as possible. After that there will be a Finish Festival and more information on the event, sponsored by Desigual (and others) can be found here http://thecolorrun.es/Barcelona
BARCA vs ATLETICO MADRID
WHEN: Sat 17 May, kick off at 18h00
WHERE: Live at Camp Nou stadium, or on a big screen at your favorite pub!
WHAT: Spanish Champions League
If you have been following the Spanish league, you will be well aware that Barcelona are very eager and anxious to grasp their second chance with both hands to take the Spanish title from Atletico! Considering Barca´s shaky performance over the last few months, this should be a very interesting game to watch! If you want to see the game live, it might be difficult to find tickets, but not impossible! We suggest you try websites such as segundamano.es or loquo.es as some people sell their unwanted tickets, sometimes at very low prices! Otherwise, take your friends down to your favorite pub and share in the spirit with the locals!
