February 2020: Pune witnessed the biggest family event this weekend – The Winter Carnival – which was brought alive by the leading kids’ channel, Nickelodeon in association with Moushmi Zaveri Sanas. The carnival offered an array of over 100+ attractions specially designed to cater to various age groups, ranging from dance competitions, ballet performances, flash mobs, kid zones including interactions with their favourite Nickelodeon toons. World-renowned Nicktoons Motu and Patlu, Shiva along with Magictoon Rudra made the evening special for the kids through a special meet and greet with the kids which included exciting games, dances, selfie sessions, to name a few.
The event which took place on 1st and 2nd February 2020 at Royal Palms saw a footfall of over 8,000 people. The objective of the carnival was to encourage quality time with family and have an entertaining weekend together. Patrons present at the festival also enjoyed a specially curated flea market with a wide variety of food and other recreational activities including interaction with their favourite Nickelodeon toons.
From the attractions and workshops designed for the kids, the meet and greet with the Nicktoons was a major highlight of the carnival. Commenting on the association, Moushmi Zaveri Sanas, curator of The Winter Carnival said, “We are delighted to have partnered with Nickelodeon for this event. We were proud to associate with Rosary Schools and Suhana Masalas. As the aim of the carnival was to let kids enjoy an entertaining weekend, kids got a chance to have fun with the toons, click selfies with them, play exciting games and make memorable experiences. This was the perfect way to end the carnival.”
We also had kids from Snehalaya NGO, an institute of handicapped and cerebral palsied children, giving us a celebration performance which enthralled the crowd.
In an era where kids and parents are not spending quality time together, The Winter Carnival aimed to bring them together to create memories and have experiences together.
