Must visit: Bandra Fair

Friday, September 14, 2012

Revisit your childhood
The Bandra Fair is a week long event held every year from September 8 at the Mount Mary Church to commemorate the Nativity of Mary, mother of Jesus. The fair has started from Sunday September 9. We tell you what to look out for this year.

Visit the Mount: If you’re feeling grateful, you can attend the special masses held in various languages as the Mount Mary Church will be open from 5.30am to 10.30pm. The wonderful thing about Bandra Fair is that not only Christians but people from all faiths come here to pray.

Street stalls: You can check out the main stalls and festivities of the Bandra Fair after descending the stairs on the east side of the church. At the end of the steps, the stalls continue through John the Baptist Road to Mount Carmel’s Church, Chapel Road and Rebello Road. You can shop for toys, clothes and even get your name printed on rice.

Food: The best part about the Bandra Fair is that you get to savour some delicious Goan food. So, gorge on Vindaloo, Kadio Bodio, Black Dodol (Goan sweet), homemade cakes, Sorpotel, Fuggias, sausages, mawa pedhas, omelettes and lots of Guava Cheese.

Fun rides: Another exciting reason to visit the Bandra Fair is to go back into childhood as they have fun fair rides such as a Ferris wheel, toy train and our favourite, The Break Dance. You can enjoy the rides for as little as `40 per ride.
