VIJAYAWADA:A 30-day fun fair and handloom handicrafts exhibition kicked off at PWD Grounds in the city with lip-smacking food and adventurous rides to share fun and frolic for the residents of Vijayawada.

As many as 300 stalls featuring handloom and handicrafts items from different parts of the country were set up in 6 acre by Sri Creators and the exhibition will go on up to May 10. The famous Kondapalli, Kalamkari, Narasapur laces and various other items will be available at the Fun Fair. In addition to this, giant wheel, break dance, cup and saucer and other varieties of rides have been arranged at the fun fair.

“Unlike every year, we mainly focussed on providing full-length fun to children. We are arranging baby trains, devil house and magic shows. People can taste the delicious food at a single place for reasonable prices. In the capital region, to share knowledge with the children about our culture and tradition, we are going to organise traditional dances like Kolatam, Kuchipudi, Tappetagullu, Devarapette etc every day, excluding Saturday and Sunday. This will provide a platform for the traditional dancers to showcase their talent,” said G Nani, head of construction and management of fair.

About 40 per cent of the stalls are still being arranged and they will be in place  in another two days.

Incharge of fair V Madhusudana Rao said that they have set up the exhibition with 40 feet roads between the rows of stalls.  The cost of entry ticket is Rs 20 and the exhibition will remain open from 6 pm to 10 pm.
