Behbud Spring Fiesta
On February 23, 2019 The annual Spring Fiesta was organized by Behbud Association, Karachi, at Beach Park, Clifton. It was a lively and colorful affair. There were stalls showcasing Behbud’s own products, worked by women trained by Behbud vocational centers, like embroidered clothing, table linen, leather items and block prints. There were, also, over 150 other stalls holders who displayed their wares for sale— shoes, clothing, jewelry, crafts, books, packaged goods and much more, making this the biggest Behbud Fiesta ever. A top notch Food Court, along with our Behbud Café, did brisk business. The Kids’ Area was a big attraction with a variety of hands-on arts and crafts activities. There were also balloons, story-telling, fun competitions, magic shows, clown juggler, pool & boats, slide, trampoline and a communal mural to be painted by Behbud’s young patrons. Stage activities kept the audience engaged along with a charming selfie booth designed by Anisa Rashid Khan.
Celebrities attended the Fiesta to support Behbud’s cause. Appearances were made by Khushbakht Shujaat, Nadia Hussain, Nazneen Tariq, YBQ, Azra Mohyeddin and Shahnaz Ramzi to name a few. The most noteworthy guest was the First Lady, Mrs. Samina Alvi, who made a special appearance and praised Behbud’s efforts highly.
