TOTO  FESTIVAL  NAMBOOLE
 
As early as 6.30am on Sunday, there was a long line of vehicles at the Namboole eastern gate as parents, children and service providers made a line to enter the stadium.

This was the third edition of the Toto Christmas Festival held at Namboole Stadium.

 

 

At the entrance, the children showed their tickets and were given tags. Written on the tags were their parents' names and telephone number.

This was to ensure that if a child could locate their parents, New Vision staff would be able to contact them and have parent and child reunited.

 

 

The children started off with the games and by 9.00pm, many were either having their faces painted, hopping up and down the bounce castles or swimming.

 

 

There was enough to get busy with.

 

 

Meanwhile, every child that entered the venue got a free copy of Sunday Vision.

 

 

The morning drizzle got everyone looking for a jacket and rain coat. However, it dampen the spirits of the fun-loving youngsters.

 

 

There were enough bicycles for those who fancied a ride.

 

 

 

The kids were delighted to meet and greet Toto Editor Aunt Jovita Ajuna.

 

Some parents helped their children get a hang of the rides.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Those who fancied a dip in the pool were also catered for, with inflatable swimming pools available.

 

 

 

For those who are not shaken by heights, they too had something for to keep busy with.
