Himachal Utsav set for gala opening

0

By: Priyanka

Solan: All is set for the eighth Himachal Utsav – a gala event showcasing ‘everything Himachali’- to be held at Thodo Ground in Solan from October 3 to 10.

The week-long extravaganza offers a rare chance for every individual with Himachali sensibilities to get immersed in local culture as it unfurls in different hues and full glory. The Utsav will witness events like cultural nites, trade fair, cuisine festival, wrestling, thoda and much more.

However, the highlight of the Utsav will definitely be the Himachal Idol event, offering a platform to budding singling talent in and around the state. To be held on October 6, the Himachal Idol will see participation from children in two categories. First is 15 years and above and second, below 14 years. In both the categories, the fee has been fixed at Rs 500. And, mind it, this idol is no joke, as every participant in the two-day event will be supported by region’s 10 best orchestra. So, all those who are looking to discover something new in the rich and vibrant Himachali culture, then this Utsav might as well be the place for you.
