There will 6 pens where the kids can pet and feed the chicks, hens and the various breeds of ducks like cows, calves, hamsters, and sheep.
Speaking about the genesis of the festival, Mr. Swaroop Banerjee, CEO, Event Capital, said, “We want to give urban families an experience they will remember and look forward to in the years to come. This is not just another mela or carnival held for kids. While we are all about having fun, every family will go back home from the festival, having learned something substantial. We want every child that comes to the Windmill Festival to sample the array of arts and sciences that we are offering, and recognise his/her innermost passion.”
