MUMBAI: Sony Yay! – The kid’s entertainment channel is all set to host its first ever funday for the entire family called ‘The Giant Wheel Festival’ (TGWF), which will be held in Kolkata at Nicco Park, Plaza III from 04 January to 05 January 2020. The initiative has been proposed for people to spend some quality time with their families.

Sony Yay! Has consistently been working to evolve their consumer outreach programs with an intent of being more inclusive with kids and the key stakeholders in their lives. With TGWF, the channel has innovated with a proposition for every member of the family. The first of its kind on-ground initiative – ‘The Giant Wheel Festival’ aims to be the ultimate destination of fun and frolic for the entire family. The festival promises to be a vibrant mix of wide-ranging activities that promise to engage, interact and entice every member of the family.

The channel, known for its fun mix of characters on its channel, with TGWF promises to bring together all the kids favorites under one roof. The carnival aims to bring the best of experience through adventure, learning and fun zones for a day-cation. The highlight of the festival is specially curated art-workshops for kids which will be hosted by the much-revered Lalon- kid’s favorite art genius. An array of workshops like pottery, science crazy lab and cooking workshops will enable the kids to learn something new. The flea market zone is touted to be the hub for shopping lovers. All the fun planned for the family will be served with Kolkata’s favorite handpicked scrumptious cuisines in the nibble corner.

The channel has roped in Book My Show as their ticketing partner and the bookings have already started in full swing.

Sony Pictures Networks India, Kids’ Genre business head Leena Lele Dutta said “Consumers often look out for a perfect opportunity to spend quality time with their families and crave for a one stop family destination. The channel’s endeavour with TGWF is to curate a property to help families create fond memories together and look forward to it year on year. With TGWF, we are taking a huge leap from being the ultimate entertainers for kids to creating an experiential platform that engages the whole family.”
