Post-lunch, more traditional games ensued, including the “Find The Coin In Flour”, “Blindfolded Yoghurt Feeding”, “Kamba Adeema”, “Aliyata Asa Thibeema”, and the challenging “Dehi Gediya Spoon Race”. The “Egg-Throwing” game added an extra layer of fun and messiness to the day.

As the afternoon heat took its toll, a refreshing snack of iced coffee and rainbow cake provided much-needed relief. This break allowed everyone to recharge and enjoy a sweet treat amidst the bustling activities.

The celebration concluded with the Awurudu Kumara and Kumariya contest. Attendees voted by writing their choices on paper, adding an element of suspense.
