You can have some theme based days in your office like Twins day, Retro look day, Pot lunch day etc for the employees. These events will help you to get all the employees together as well as they are lot of fun. You can organise fun games like one minute games or if & then.
you can also arrange for some gifts to motivate the employees.
For festivals such as Diwali, you can have traditional day (every emp must represent a state & should wear the tradtional outfit of that state)
Hope this is useful to you

Here is a link to a post in Citehr where a member has shared her PPT on employee engagement for her corporate. I am sure the suggestions given above as well the outline of possibilities in the PPT and some search in this site can help you structure something relevant and effective for your organization.
Let me also add that each engagement activity must be thoroughly studied for its relevance to your employees, its suitability to your organizational culture, the budget allocations, its implementation and its effectiveness. Employee feedback and suggestions can give you excellent insights to make the activity even more effective with some minor changes or a bit of tweaking.
