A memorable day out for Children of the city as International Clowns Parade Phoenix MarketCity
In an ode to Childrens’ Day, Phoenix MarketCity hosted the International Clown Festival for the first time in Chennai. With the objective to provide a truly fun–filled and global feel to Childrens’ Day, the International Clown Festival was a unique event hosted at the mall.
The one of its kind event drew parents and children from all over the city who eagerly anticipated the line up off fascinating engagements planned. Keeping the age old art of ‘Clowning’ and circus skills alive, the festival was an ideal way to spread laughter and joy through the childlike acts demonstrated through mischievous gimmicks of the clowns!
With professional clowns coming in all the way from the United States, children got the opportunity to get a first-hand account of eye catching stunts and activities. Beginning with a wonderful parade and engaging the crowd, the artists performed amazing acts such as Juggling, Tumbling, Mime, Stilt Walking, Uni-cycling, Acting, Comedy by witty comedy stars.
Against the live ambient music performed, kids and parents were seen in a merry and cheerful mood, at the sight of the numerous activities performed by the clowns. Taking the enthusiasm to an all new level, children screamed with nervous excitement as Stilt Walkers wandered around the mall.
By the end of the evening children were finding it hard to bid adieu to much loved clowns Benji, Flubber, Timmy, Sparky and Lolo! Kids were encouraged to make funny faces whilst posing with their favourite characters, as parents gladly took pictures and selfies in order to capture the truly distinctive and memorable moments!
