A host of amusement and shopping activities at the on-going Ramadan and Eid Exhibition has made Expo Centre Sharjah the most happening place during the Eid Al Fitr holidays.
The exhibition, which got under way on June 25, will continue until tomorrow and serve as a major family and tourist attraction during the holidays.
The exhibition hours too have been revised for the Eid holidays. The show will remain open from 5pm to 11pm against 7.30pm to 2pm during Ramadan. Admission is free for all. Apart from the regular outdoor and indoor entertainment areas, food courts, free health check-up, amusement rides and games and raffle draws, there will be additional events like adventure activities, magic shows, cartoon characters and folk dances.
"The support and guidance of the Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Expo Centre Sharjah have played a great role in helping us deliver an impressive show. This will encourage us to present a bigger and better show next year," said Naser Al Bahri, General Manager of Al Hader Exhibitions & Conferences, which is organising the show for the first time in the 28-year history of the Ramadan and Eid Exhibition.
