Family Fun Day – 1st August

Amovate Family Fun Day 2015A wise woman once said: “As long as you’re having fun, you’re doing the right thing”.

So, why not do the right thing and come along to Amovate’s Blue Riband Event for 2015—the Family Fun Day, our main attraction of the year.

It will take place from 2pm-8pm on Saturday August 1st at the large field in front of Hugo’s Bar at the apartments on the road leading towards Arrifana and we are planning to pack the afternoon and evening with a variety of activities, events and entertainments for the whole family to enjoy.


“I know it is wet and the sun is not sunny, but we can have lots of good fun that is funny.”
Dr. Seuss, The Cat in the Hat


Clearly, on the first day of August, we ARE expecting sunshine, not rain, and we do intend that everyone will have lots of good fun, whatever the weather has in store!

Last year’s family-oriented event saw perhaps more kids enjoying themselves than anyone’s ever seen in one place on Vale da Telha…and it certainly was a Fun-in-the-Sun Day!

Now, Amovate, your local community association aims to have another FUN-tastic day, plenty of fun and games with even more people having a great time and so much for the family to enjoy together.

Here’s what to expect as you embark on a wonderful afternoon and evening hosted by Amovate and Hugo’s Bar:


Bombeiros Band                               15.30 to 16.30

Caporeira Dancers                           16.30 to 17.00

Areano (singer/ guitarist)             17.00 to 20.00

But while all of this is going on there is so much for the kids to do.

There will be donkey rides, a bouncy castle, face-painting and hair-braiding.

They can play games on The Cube, take pot-shots on a coconut shy or play on a football machine.

For the adults there are a variety of stalls offering jewellery, foot treatment, Aloe Vera as well as one organised by the Conferencia de Nossa Senhora D´Alva, the childrens’ charity in Aljezur.

And the Petanca Club are also holding a boules competition should you wish to try your hand.

On a more serious note, should you wish, you can sit down with a representative of Avalon and discuss funeral plans.

Programmes for this event will soon be on sale at €1 apiece and each one includes a lucky number which will be entered into a prize draw. If you are not able to buy one in advance they will also be available on the day.

Just as importantly, while everybody’s having such a good time they’ll be helping to raise more money for the charities supported every year by Amovate.

We are proud that through our Charity Fund we have helped local families in need, helped facilitate the donation of €50,000 worth of firefighting and life-saving equipment for Aljezur Bombeiros plus three life-saving defibrillators, two for the Bombeiros to use in their vehicles and the other for the use of residents in Vale da Telha and the surrounding districts.

We have provided nine wheelchairs for Portimao Hospital, a ripple bed to ease the suffering of long-term bedridden patients, a much-needed new computer for a rehabilitation centre and a washing machine for a local charity, which has also received cash donations from Amovate.

So, while you are having as good time today you can do so knowing you will also be helping good causes in your area.

So come along, bring the family, support our local worthy causes…and have a great time in the process!

Now that’s what you call having FUN!
