The main entertainment of the afternoon, the Garba, Raas, Dandia then started with the Sangeet Sarita group singing traditional Garba songs. Firstly with children joining hands to form a train and learning the steps of Garba. Adults were eager and did there Garba moves along with the children too. It was truly an afternoon of fun for everyone.

Children had come prepared to have fun dressed in lovely Traditional Indian outfits - queuing to take pictures at the photobooth ! Many had also participated in both best dressed and best decorated Aarti competitions. The judges were amazed by the presentation of the Aarti plates.

There was Mendhi stalls, face painting and a bouncy castle for the little ones. The food was mouthwatering.
