The Sharjah Commerce and Tourism Development Authority (SCTDA) has rolled out a schedule of exciting recreational, cultural and educational activities at the Expo Centre Sharjah, alongside its ongoing Sharjah Summer Festival 2019.
The event will run until August 17, 2019, forming part of the SCTDA’s efforts to develop the emirate’s tourism and other key sectors.
The Expo Centre’s ‘Sharjah Fun Fair’ has been divided into different areas where children can enjoy a range of games and activities being held at the Cartoon Network Football Zone, featuring a free play football pitch, a Cartoon Network-themed football shoot-out, and a fully functioning Cartoon Network arts and crafts area.
In this zone, they can have fun kicking the ball around, trying out more advanced skills in the shoot-out, or showcasing their creative side – all in one fully equipped area. The Sharjah Fun Fair also has a special PlayStation Gaming Zone as well as a Transformers Gaming Zone, where children can have a chance to be part of the world of transformers, battle the enemies and save the world. The two zones are designed to take gaming to the next level.
Other activities include a zip line; a My Little Pony show, which is currently ongoing and will run until July 28, 2019; the Hotel Transylvania show, which will run from August 6-17, 2019, and features a birthday party at Dracula’s Castle; kids cinema that features Arabic and English Cartoon Network programmes, including We Bare Bears, Ben 10, Adventure Time, Gumball, and Powerpuff Girls; and a ball pit pool. In addition, the ‘Sharjah Fun Fair’ houses a Food Zone with bright themed food stalls.
“Through our collaboration with the Expo Centre Sharjah, we aim to achieve the fundamental objectives of Sharjah Tourism Vision to attract 10 million tourists by 2021,” chairman, SCTDA, HE Khalid Jasim Al Midfa remarked. “With the unwavering support of Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah, HH Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Muhammed Al Qasimi, we continue to work with our partners from the public and private sectors to develop diverse products and services that will help boost the tourism sector, which is one of the important pillars of the emirate’s economic development.”
