WITH TRADITIONALLY decorated dandia sticks in their hands, small children merrily danced with ‘Pooch’ (Mascot of Pizza Hut) and tried to match his garba steps on the fourth day of Kids Karnival at Treasure Island Mall on Tuesday.

Dandia with Pooch was a daylong activity of the event on Tuesday. The Karnival began with dandia by the primary section girls from Queens’ College who came here along with their teachers. The children had meal at Pizza Hut under the special offer.

After garba there was talent show for kids, which included dance and singing contests. All the participants of these shows were presented prizes. A singing contest was held for the teachers who presented songs demanded by their students. The teachers won special vouchers for dedicating songs to the children. The Food Court again got crowded towards the evening when families started coming to the Karvinal with their children.

Two new activities have been added to the daily shows in the Karnival. The ‘Granny-Grandpa Rock’ programme will be held at 6 pm on September 30. Here the grandparents accompanying the children will perform on stage. Prizes like movie tickets, gift hampers and vouchers will be in store for them.

In addition, there will be special prizes for every child accompanied by his/her grandparents. Another event in this category will be the Nach Baliye contest for parents. This will be held at 6 pm on October 1.
