Greeted by a friendly host upon arrival, children were engaged in a plethora of fun-filled activities, fun rides at the Kids Carnival play area, party games and goodies to build in the excitement.
The spectacular decoration at Growel’s 1O1 Mall is themed on Santa’s Village this year. Jolly Jamboree center piece of the magnificent décor is a life size Santa’s House cum Christmas Tree.
