This time ‘Treasure Hunt on wheels’ is something coming for the city for the first time. The treasure hunt on wheels (cars) would take the participants through the places of tourist interest in and around the city as they try to find the hidden treasure. The clues to find the treasure would be given on the mobile app. The participants can travel in the car as they go hunting for the treasure. Valid guidelines are to be followed to participate in it which includes the speed limit and license documents. Indian Navy is going to organise water sports events like: sail boat corvette race, sea swimming by divers and search and rescue operations by helicopter. Bollywood music director Pritam would present a concert for the first time in Vizag and the rock band Thaikuddam Bridge would present regional and English numbers. So what are you waiting for… Vizagites its going to be one awesome ride all the three days to end this year.
