The weekend fun continues this month and they have more in store!
The second season of Mumbai’s Ballard Estate Festival took place in October with a plethora of people of all age groups gathering and enjoying the festivities at the venue. The numbers as well as the support for the festival was astounding and with the second weekend taking place on the 26th and 27th of November, people have a lot more to look forward to.
Founder and Creative Director of Ferriswheel Entertainment, Shubhra Bhardwaj stated, “It is my honour to see how vastly the festival is expanding its horizon. With such an overwhelming response, we are prepared to deliver another action packed event. It is exciting to see how the city comes together and adds glory to the festival; how wonderful it is that we can be a city which celebrates itself and its people.”
This time around there’s a Kid Zone with trampolines, inflatable Sumo wrestling costumes, penalty shootout games, Science Junk related to cars and a moon rover. There will also be a Pet Zone with a pet food bakery by Brinda’s Pet Bakery, Fidel Pets with all pooch-related needs like leashes, food and grooming services along with pet adoption. The Health Zone will have a re-connective healing process with Jalpa Vithalani while the Food Festival will have delicious cuisines, all waiting for you to make a pick. The venue will feature a Vintage Car display. But the biggest crowd puller might just be the B-boying dance off. The event will also host a promotion for the movie ‘Sing’, stand-up comedy shows and a street play. Other attractions include an inflatable Sumo Wrestling ring, a showcase of robots and gadgets and a special meet and greet with animated characters Bade Chhote.
The original attraction of the Silent Open-Air Cinema will make a return along with an art exhibition and workshops for origami work, heritage walks and a vintage car rally! The main stage will have performances by Ash King, Akasa Singh, Siddharth Slathia and Ambilini Menon with the staple uni cyclists, jugglers, clowns and stilt walkers roaming the area.
So make sure you get a chance to visit the festival if you didn’t make it before.
