The largest South Asian festival in Canada, #BollywoodMonster Mashup presented by TD, brings even more fun and free activities to festival-goers this time around at Mississauga Celebration Square. On July 21, as part of the #BollywoodMonster Family Day starting at 2pm, there will be a flurry of action to choose from including the KidZone with various games and activities, shopping, finger-licking food, free dance workshops and more.
“The KidZone is an integral part of the #BollywoodMonster Family Day experience, and we look to continue to grow it at this year’s festival. On behalf of the MonstrARTity team, we’d like to thank Toronto Area Ford Dealers for bringing the free mini car rides to the KidZone for #BollywoodMonster Family Day”, says Executive Director of MonstrARTity, Vikas Kohli. “It’s just as exciting that we will have some very skillful chefs who will be providing free cooking demos at the ever-expanding ChefZone. We have free parking for everyone so don’t miss out on the eighth season of this great festival that starts at 2 PM!
In collaboration with Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives (PAMA), and Heritage Mississauga, the #BollywoodMonster KidZone presents an exciting array of free arts and crafts such as creating pinwheels, bowl painting and flyable kites. Free games will also be provided courtesy of #MonsterArts for Youth and The Vaarso Foundation, who will be bringing a giant snakes and ladders board game, as well as teaching kids how to make their very own board games. In addition, kids will be able to ride in mini cars courtesy of Toronto Area Ford Dealers.
Just like in years past, the #BollywoodMonster Family Day will also have activities for children looking for a little more physical recreation. Brought to you by Mohawk Park Tennis Club, kids will be able to let loose, swing those rackets and get on the court to learn tennis skills in a mini tennis court! If that doesn’t break a sweat, Heal with Kare also brings to the fold a parent and child yoga workshop. Finally, if you’re up to the challenge, throughout the day’s festivities, Shiamak’s dance troupe and Tricube Dance will present free Bollywood dance workshops on the main stage for the audience to get those hips moving and body grooving.
This year’s headliners at the festival are Bollywood star performers –
Aaman Trikha, brought to you by TELUS, voice of Salman Khan in Prem Leela on July 21 and
Khushboo Grewal, voice of Sunny Leone and actor from Carry on Jatta on July 20.
