There was also a petting zoo which gave kids an opportunity to interact and spend time enjoying the company of several furry friends.

The festival unfolded with great success and even saw some B-town glamour as several celebrities attended along with their children.

The fest was co- powered by well-known brands like Kotak Mutual Fund and Hershey India Pvt. Ltd

Commenting on his experience at the festival Rannvijay Singha with his daughter Kainaat Singha said “The WindMill festival had a variety of activities for all age group kids from a dance workshop to live parade. I really had a good time with my daughter and she had a lot of fun. Such events can create some unforgettable moments and one should actively participate. I am looking forward to such festivals where I can spend some quality time with my family.”

Kotak Mutual Fund Kinjal Shah digital business & marketing head at commented "In a city like Mumbai, where schedules are so busy it's very difficult for kids to go outdoor for activities on daily basis, a festival like WindMill provides an opportunity for both parents and kids to go out together and freak out as there are so many activities to choose from for them to enjoy. This is the 2nd year in a row where we are one of the sponsors and for brands like us, we get a chance to closely observe the behavior of kids and parents together. We have always got an overwhelming response in the event so we continue to associate with them year on year."

Speaking on this, Deepak Chaudhary, Founder and Director, Event Capital said “The event has been a huge success and we are overwhelmed seeing approximately 18,000 entries on ground. Organizing events that can become a lifetime memory is what we strive towards and we are glad to be able to create such thriving concepts that go on to have a life of their own."

Speaking on this, Janak Vora, CEO, Event Capital said “We were extremely happy to bring the 4th edition of Windmill Nickelodeon Festival to such a successful close. This event was conceptualized with the intent to prioritize the need to step into the outdoor and take a break from all the screens we are surrounded by constantly. Petting Zoo is where saw the maximum attraction since it allowed the kids directly to spend time with animals. We look forward to create more such experiences for families."
