Dubai, UAE: Dubai Festival City Mall, part of Al-Futtaim Malls, has announced a new line-up of spring activities at Ripe By The Bay by the much-loved Ripe Market taking place till the end of this month. Running daily from 4pm-10pm until May 2022 across the iconic Festival Bay, the market brings the best of family-friendly al fresco fun with shopping, dining, entertainment, and the ever-popular IMAGINE show for visitors of all ages.  Be spoilt for choice at Ripe By The Bay, in true Ripe Market style with endless products to purchase from the SME community, merchant and makers, from fashion, jewellery, arts, homewares and more.

During March, visitors will be spoiled for choice with fun activities all week long. Guests can get their geek on Tuesdays at Quiz Night for some serious brain-crunching action and win exciting prizes (beat family and friends, too). Wednesdays are for Piñata Madness, so kiddies can get smashing until the floor explodes with treats. On Thursdays, it will be time for Bingo Night – and may the best player win. Fridays are for fun games and the bubble show, which means plenty of surprises await.

Saturdays are for balloon bending and a treasure hunt, where kiddies will search for clues and win prizes, also taking home funky pops from the balloon-bending corner. Families can end the weekend with a bang at Dubai Festival City Mall’s Ripe By The Bay as performers take the stage on Sundays for some traditional tunes. Next up is the magician, wowing the young (and young at heart) with tricks just for laughs. Kiddies will then be able to take part in another treasure hunt, as they search for clues and unveil exciting gifts.

Throughout this month, there will be a singer performing every day of the week at Dubai Festival City Mall’s Ripe by the Bay – so get ready to sing along!
