an exhibition on birds was held in our locality
at Salt Lake. It is a very famous exhibition
that is organized every year in the month of
December. I attended the exhibition with my
The exhibition started from 11 a.m. in the morning. It was held in the Salt Lake Stadium. One part of the ground was surrounded with barricade made of tin. The ground was decorated with colourful lights. Many stalls were set up for displaying the birds. These stalls were made of wooden frames.
The main attraction of the exhibition was our Chief Minister. She came and cut the ribbon in the opening ceremony. There were many species of birds. Birds like sparrows, parrots, kakatua, pigeon and many more were kept there for display. It was also quite interesting and exciting to see many colourful birds of other countries in the exhibition.
It was a winter afternoon and people came and crowded the place. They were moving from one stall to another. Some of them were buying birds, some were only watching and some people were busy bargaining with the bird sellers. The children were the most excited lot among all the visitors. They were so thrilled that they were running all over the ground. They were very happy to see so many colourful birds together. It was very nice to see and hear the talking parrots. A bird trainer was controlling the parrots. Many small children crowded that stall.
In one corner of the ground, magic show and puppet show were organized. On the opposite side there were many food stalls. Food and snacks of different types was being sold there. Children were mostly buying ice-creams and popcorns.
Many people were seen carrying cages in their hands on their way home. It was truly a nice exhibition to visit. This exhibition is becoming more and more popular every year. I liked the birds very much but I did not like to see them caged!.
