Gangtok is gearing up for a outdoor festival as Pop Up Pasal will be held from September 30 to October 2 at Ridge Park. A selfie booth, as part of the pre-event programme, was inaugurated at MG Marg recently. Miss Supranational India, Peden Ongmu Namgyal and bloggers Dikila Barfungpa, Abigail George Lama, Manny and Rikzong, were present among others. The theme for this year’s event is ‘women empowerment’.
Presented by Studio Ensemble, Namchi and coordinated by Empire Creations, the three day festival will offer a play zone for kids, art display, science exhibition, bazaar, live music, food stalls and more. The festival is being organised in collaboration with Birds, Beasts & Relatives, which is a pet store in Deorali, so dog owners will be able to treat their pets to relaxing grooming sessions.
Dechen Saring, event coordinator, shared that the aim of the festival is to provide good employment opportunities to the youth and upscale their face market.
