4th Aug, ’13: GB’s Friendship Day Picnic to Neral

GB’s Friendship Day Picnic to Neral

Celebrate Friendship Day in the company your friends at the GayBombay Friendship Day Picnic, creating memories that can be cherished for years to come.

In total contrast to the trek last month, the Friendship Day Picnic is a laid back, relaxed outing in a picture perfect setting by the River Ulhas, adorned by acres of orchards and sprawling lush greens. A kaleidoscope of colour in the strokes of beautiful butterflies, exotic birds and extensive arrays of flowers & fruit species, vivid flora and fauna promise to breathe renewed life into you.

Amidst this glory of nature and the luxury of solitude there shall be fun-filled games and activities to indulge in with your friends, You can choose splash water in the river or drench yourself under the waterfall. Go fishing or hitch a ride on the back of a bullock or just go paddle boating on the river. Its a fun and frolic event minus the labour of trekking.

For those who missed out or were denied registrations at the trek, this is a great opportunity to grab your place. So hurry, this Picnic is strictly open to the first 50 who register and make their contribution. Guys residing as far as Pune, Roha and Dahanu can also join us.
