Side attraction for the kids and parents were mass aerobics, Egg & Spoon race, colouring & face painting, music chairs, sack race, 5-a-side- football, parents & kids charade as music and drinks for refreshment.
The fiesta which was attended by kids across the capital was sponsored by BIC, Right To Play, Bel-Aqua, Plan International, GARMIN, Peak Milk, Yum mie Noodles and Zoomlion.
