23rd DITF: Amusement park for kids props up robust weekend crowd


Amusement park section of Dhaka International Trade Fair (DITF) 2018 was buzzing with kids and their parents on Friday as the annual trade fair witnessed a huge rush of visitors on the weekend, reports UNB.

To allow visitors, especially children some different scope to entertain themselves, an amusement section has been organized in the 23rd DITF, like the previous years.

Visitors were found enjoying merry-go-round, toy train, speedy cradler, 9D movie ride, etc, while an Eco-Park was set up with both live birds and artificial statues of animals. The Eco Park named Sundarban Eco Park was one of the main attractions for kids at the trade fair.

Zamiur Rahman Lemon, founder and concept designer of this park, told UNB that he has been setting up this Eco-Park since 2013 to create awareness among people about the Sundarbans and environment. The park will also work as a relaxation spot for the visitors, he added.

Meanwhile, the children’s amusement park was crowded with visitors, both children and adults. Rehan, a six-year-old who came to the fair with his father, said that he most enjoyed the merry-go-round.

His father Mr Hakim, principal officer of Janata Bank, said that kids usually get bored at such huge fair, so the amusement park section is a relief for the parents as it attracts the kids more.
