24th February 2020 Mumbai: India’s largest festival for kids, Nickelodeon Windmill Festival, an initiative by Event Capital and Tribe Asia aimed at providing a wholesome experience for toddlers, pre-teens and parents which took place on 22nd and 23rd February 2020 at JioWorld Garden, BKC. The festival’s main objective was to give the urban child healthy and positive outdoor experiences and encourage families to spend quality time together via the various activities on offer at the festival.
The two-day event had an eclectic selection of 50+ workshops specially curated and designed to cater to various age groups across interests like beat-boxing, robotics, Lego workshops, stop motion animation, aeronautics, karate and kick-boxing, storytelling, doodle art and many more. There was also a petting zoo which gave kids an opportunity to interact and spend time enjoying the company of several furry friends.
The festival unfolded with great success and even saw some B-town glamour as several celebrities attended along with their children. Spotted at the festival were personalities like Rannvijay Singha with his daughter Kainnat Singha, Tannaz Irani, Barkha Sengupta and Sayantani Ghosh with their kids. The kids thoroughly enjoyed the petting zoo, dance workshop and pottery making activity while the Imagica dance parade and the live music band were some of the other highlights.
The fest was co-powered by well-known brands like Kotak Mutual Fund and Hershey India Pvt. Ltd
Kinjal Shah, Head at Digital Business & Marketing at Kotak Mutual Fund commented “In a city like Mumbai, where schedules are so busy it’s very difficult for kids to go outdoors for activities on a daily basis, a festival like WindMill provides an opportunity for both parents and kids to go out together and freak out as there are so many activities to choose from for them to enjoy. This is the 2nd year in a row where we are one of the sponsors and for brands like us, we get a chance to closely observe the behaviour of kids and parents together. We have always got an overwhelming response in the event so we continue to associate with them year on year.”
Speaking on this, Deepak Chaudhary, Founder and Director, Event Capital said “The event has been a huge success and we are overwhelmed seeing approximately 18,000 entries on the ground. Organizing events that can become a lifetime memory is what we strive towards and we are glad to be able to create such thriving concepts that go on to have a life of their own.”
Speaking on this, Janak Vora, CEO, Event Capital said, “We were extremely happy to bring the 4th edition of Windmill Nickelodeon Festival to such a successful close. This event was conceptualized with the intent to prioritize the need to step into the outdoors and take a break from all the screens we are surrounded by constantly. Petting Zoo is where saw the maximum attraction since it allowed the kids directly to spend time with animals. We look forward to creating more such experiences for families.”
