And if you’re wondering how to make 2017 special and different, then try out these 5 fun activities to do this Diwali and make cherished memories together!  After all, the best gift you can give to those you hold dear is your time. 

Diwali Mela

There’s nothing like going on a shopping spree with your family during Diwali. One such event, Sunday Soul Sante festival, is perfect for shopping from curated brands across apparel, accessories, stationery, décor and more, and promises a host of live entertainment for you and your loved ones to enjoy. 

Ranch Getaway

If travelling to Texas or Tuscany isn’t on the cards, might as well make a trip to the International Riding School near Bangalore. Kick back at one of the luxury tents, head to Ai Cavalli for authentic Italian recipes or simply relax and marvel at majestic wild horses from a distance.

Lunch Scenes

Want an abundant and fancy thali? Does true family bonding happens over a meal? Reserve your spot at Samaroh. Start off with their amuse-bouche, a sweet Moti Choor Boondi and follow it up with delights from the chaat counter or an array of interesting snacks. Then, gorge on aromatic pulaos, creamy curries, and delectable sweet and creamy shrikand.

Temple Run

The best way to make your parents happy this Diwali is go on a temple run and there’s no better place to start than Bangalore. From bull temple to ISKON, the city is rich in cultural and historical heritage. 

Trampoline Park

Loosen up with your friends and go nuts this season at India’s largest trampoline park. Leave your worries and phones behind and challenge your friends with kickass moves over the foam pit or simply indulge in a friendly banter over the trampoline space. Burning calories and stress, and bonding at the same time were never this fun. 

We’re sure you’ve added these activities to your wishlist, and have fun ideas, parties and more planned for this festive season. But do make sure you wind down from the distraction of technology, especially to spend time with loved ones, friends and relatives.
