Dubai, UAE - 20 April 2022: Dubai Festival City Mall, part of Al-Futtaim Malls, is ready to welcome Ramadan at Ripe by the Bay with a family-friendly line-up of themed activities for all.
Introduced by the city's favourite SME shopping platform Ripe Market, the Ripe By The Bay runs daily until May 2022 across the iconic Festival Bay. The market brings the best of family-friendly al fresco fun with dining, entertainment, and the ever-popular IMAGINE show for visitors of all ages. Ripe By The Bay also features Ripe Market's best loved homegrown buys from merchants and makers – from fashion and jewellery to arts, homeware and more.
Throughout the month of April, visitors can look forward to daily entertainment at Festival Bay, which is bound to make every night as memorable as can be. Mallgoers can kick start the weekends on Saturdays as kiddies take part in arts and crafts, decorating household items with traditional Ramadan-themed elements such as lanterns and crescent moons. Enjoy Sunday evenings watching cultural performances with some complimentary Arabic coffee and delicious dates, which have been a central part of Arab culture for centuries
Tuesdays at Ripe By The Bay are all about quick thinking, as visitors take on the popular Quiz Night for an engaging, laughter-filled time. The highest scoring family will receive a gift voucher of AED 150 from a Ripe By The Bay vendor – so get ready to flex your grey matter. Wednesdays are for piñatas, prompting kiddies to get ready for smashing fun. The Ramadan-themed piñata will be filled with treats – and may the feistiest unveil its hearty contents.
Nothing is left to chance at Dubai Festival City Mall – except Bingo Thursdays. Ripe By The Bay visitors will take turns to match numbers to the cards and the winner will receive a gift voucher of AED 150 from a Ripe By The Bay vendor. Mallgoers can also win a voucher on fun and games every Friday, where musical chairs, tug of war, Simon Says and many more shenanigans await.
Don't forget the unmissable IMAGINE, a two-time Guinness World Record-breaking show. The choreographed projection spectacle features the best of music, lighting, and expressive imagery for a captivating experience. Mallgoers can catch the IMAGINE show daily from 7pm-12:30am, every half hour as it dazzles into the night skies. Additionally, from Wednesdays to Sundays at 9pm, the oud player will be demonstrating the magic of the classical Arabic instrument with traditional tunes, filling the air with fragrant oriental music every day of the week except Tuesday.
