Rather interestingly, the commemorative medals for the event were distributed in a blind box. The four medals with childhood memories such as the Clockwork Frog, Bubble Gum, Young Pioneer Label and Lollipop as the main elements are innovative and childlike in design. In addition, 10 children who had their birthdays a few days before and after June 1 and their families were invited to a fun birthday party to watch a dance and magic show and share a birthday cake together.
It is understood that in addition to the offline activities, the 2021 “Passionate Youth” Chongqing Children’s Day Happy Run will be held from June 1 to June 30, with the theme of “Happy Run Season”.
