It was all fanfare at Kololo Independence grounds last Sunday as children accompanied by their parents braved the scorching sun to be part of this year’s My Kid is a Superstar Green Chritmas party.
The festival co-sponsored by Vision Group’s Toto magazine, Zuku TV and Proctor and Allan, the makers of cornflakes, started at 10:00am and went throughout the day climaxing with fireworks at 7:00pm.
The fun-filled event was characterised by activities like children modeling, biking and dancing. The children also got a chance to have a glimpse at World Athletic champion, Stephen Kiprotich, who talked to them about physical fitness.
Almost the entire Uganda Wildlife Education Centre (Entebbe Zoo) relocated to Kololo. The children seemed not to have enough of the serval cats, the lion, parrots, leopard, ostrich and the African rock python on display. Innovative entrepreneurs made quick bucks through swings, face painting, horse rides and selling snacks and drinks.
Local musicians, Coco Finger and Big Eye sent the kids into a frenzy with their hits. Toto Editor, Jovita Ajuna handed over gifts and watches to kids who performed very well.
My Kid is a Superstar CEO Joseph Masembe, hailed the parents for bringing their children for the event. An estimated 17,000 children attended the event. Children lookout for the Super Kid talent search in May, 2014
