The Ballard Estate Festival check-list
Here's another reason to trek to town and marvel at how pretty South Bombay is
Here's another reason to trek to town and marvel at how pretty South Bombay is.
It’s also time to indulge in some good ol’ cultural fun — listen to music, take a heritage walks, appreciate artworks, shop at a flea market and eat some gourmet food — all on the open streets of the Ballard Estate area.
Here are just some of the reasons for you to pencil the festival in
>> Nikhil D’Souza performs on Valentine’s Day and this guy’s love songs are just the right kind of corny. Brownie points for whoever suggests it.
>> Head to their sound-free, open air theatre which will have special screenings that you can enjoy on your cordless headsets
>> The street food festival is all about serving Maharashtra on a plate. Get ready to sample some authentic Kothambir Wadi and Thalipeeth.
>> Indie band Colour Compound, who perform on March 19, will draw you in with good songwriting coupled with great melodies. The boys are fun to watch too. Girls, be there.
>> If you just want to walk around and take in the sites, hop on a Segway ride or register for a free heritage walk. There are enough jugglers, caricature artistes and stilt walkers to keep your wandering eye busy too.
On every weekend till March 27
