Al Majaz Waterfront, the debut project of Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq), has seen a vast public turnout throughout the Holy Month of Ramadan and the three days of Eid Al Fitr, establishing it as one of the most prominent tourist attractions in the country.
During Ramadan and Eid Al Fitr, Al Majaz Waterfront was a favoured destination for families, a fact that is attributed to the rich and diverse range of activities offered by Shurooq, which were designed specifically to meet the different tastes of all members of the family.
These succeeded in bringing together families from various cultural backgrounds at one place to enjoy the cultural combination that reflects the social harmony of the Emirati community and its deep-rooted culture.
Speaking on the occasion, Ahmed Obaid Al Qaseer, chief operating officer of Shurooq, said: "Ramadan and Eid Al Fitr this year were exceptional for Al Majaz Waterfront, especially as it was the first opportunity for this landmark location to welcome tourists and visitors on such an important festive occasion.”
Al Qaseer added: "In the light of significance of the occasion we were eager to offer competitive yet unique events and shows that would appeal to families. We were able to achieve this goal, the proof of which was clearly manifest in the strong turnout of visitors at Al Majaz Waterfront. Looking forward, we are considering new plans to make this location a truly sustainable destination for families and tourists.”
The Eid package of activities at Al Majaz Waterfront comprised events such as a multimedia show involving the popular songs "Baba Nizel Maasho” and "I Love You Mama” by young Arabs Got Talent little singer Hala Al Turk being played against the backdrop of the fountain. Both songs received a huge applause from the audience, who interacted with the young star and sang along with her.
The Eid programme included the screening of the Freej cinematic show at the Sharjah Fountain, the show "Sharjah Past, Present and Future” and a poetry show titled "Sharjah” by Mohammed Al Beriki and a host of workshops for children.
Community members praised Al Majaz Waterfront's various amenities and commended the arrangement and organisation of the events and activities, all of which were specially designed for Ramadan and Eid Al Fitr. – The Gulf Today
