# 5xYES, the fifth birthday of TAURON Arena Krakow
TAURON Arena Krakow invites you to attend the largest "private place" party in history, i.e. the Arena’s fifth birthday. Numerous attractions await all residents of Krakow on Sunday, June 9th.
- Tradition has been honored. Once again, we are inviting the residents of Krakow to celebrate the birthday of the largest sports and entertainment hall in Poland. In this way, we want to thank the residents for being with us, taking part in the events that take place at TAURON Arena Krakow and making the facility and the area around it come to life every day - said Małgorzata Marcińska, president of the management board of Agencja Rozwoju Miasta SA [City Development Agency].
– We want guests to feel at home in the arena, as if they were attending a large "private" birthday party and spend their free time here. Everyone will surely find something for themselves among the numerous attractions that we are preparing - she added.
On the 9th of June, special zones covering the five themes accompanying the birthday party will be prepared in the complex.
Open volleyball, basketball, American football and karate trainings will be organized in the small hall and dojo. Special karate and volleyball shows will be shown in the main arena and in front of the hall.
For the first time in the history of TAURON Arena Krakow, a go-kart track will be created in the facility - you will be able to race in the underground parking area of the arena. Krakow Street Park will be returning to the underground car park specifically for the birthday, as an ideal place for all people who ride on roller skates, roller blades, BMX bikes, scooters, longboards and skateboards.
Strong emotions will certainly accompany the participants of the Super Game e-sport. On June 9th , the grand finale of this year's season will take place at TAURON Arena Krakow.
A special children's play zone will be created on the main arena. The activities will include demonstrations and dance workshops, parkour and acrobatic workshops, face painting and a big pillow battle.
Until now, TAURON Arena Krakow has hosted dozens of well-known artists and such bands as: Aerosmith, Depeche Mode, Metallica, Queen, Bruno Mars, Enrique Iglesias, Sting, Shawn Mendes and Mariah Carey. Their music tracks will accompany the participants of the event throughout the whole day in the arena.
The five-year history of TAURON Arena Krakow will also be remembered by presentation of an exhibition in the foyer of the arena. On the occasion of the birthday, part of the arena's area will once again turn into a cinema room - displaying, among others, fairytales for children.
A picnic will be organized outside TAURON Arena Krakow. A special zone prepared by the Municipal Police Headquarters in Krakow will also be established. There will be a police car and a police motorcycle and a bicycle obstacle course for participants. An anti-terrorist unit will also present its equipment. Thanks to alcohol goggles and drug goggles you will also be able to personally experience the negative impact of alcohol and drugs on an individual’s perception of reality.
Just like every year, during the birthday of TAURON Arena, Krakow will invite Krakow residents to visit the hall and look into places that are not available to event participants on a daily basis.
The fifth birthday of TAURON Arena Krakow will take place on Sunday, June 9, starting at 10.00 am. Admission to the event is free. Some of the attractions will require pre-registration. Details are listed on the tauronarenakrakow.pl website and on Facebook.
