The magic pavilion put up by Muthucaud Magic Academy, which presented 5 shows each day for the entire period of the exhibition was specially appreciated.

A unique feature of the exhibition was that there were cultural programmes on all days from 6 pm to 10m, which was marked by the enormous attendance of the public. The Musical Sandhya presented by the play back singers Nishaad, Durga Vishwanath, Pradeep Palluruthi and Soumya Ramakrishnan was a memorable experience for the audience.
