Thane has long had a tradition of celebrating Children’s Day on November 14 with gusto, every year. This year, too, with several building societies holding prestigious competitions and private organisations organising activities for children, the situation is no different.
However, Thane has an exciting Children’s Festival lined up starting today, to interest children of all age groups. The Vinod Memorial Welfare Society is organising the week-long festival and will include a variety of activities, such as acts like magic shows to serious sporting competitions.
Says Mukesh Thombre, one of the organisers, “The festival was organised with a view to observing Vinod Thombre’s birthday on November 11, and to also celebrate Children’s Day on November 14. This will be a week-long fiesta with all participants enjoying art and crafts competitions, treasure hunts, essay writing competitions, etc. We are also organising afashion show, and sporting matches for box cricket, badminton and ring football for the older age groups, and there will also be traditional Indian games such as lagori, gilli danda being played.”
Younger age groups can also participate in song and dance competitions and art contests. The festival wraps up on Sunday, November 16.
