The ‘Summer Splash Party’ at Sharjah’s lakeside destination, Al Majaz Waterfront, is proving to be a dream come true for children enjoying the long summer break. In company of their favourite #Iloveshj mascot, the furry long-eared Yarboa, big crowds of young aqua-venturers are enjoying a host of splashing activities, including inflatable Yarboa-themed water slides, creative sand box activities, and reveling in the cool mist around them produced by foam cloud and bubble machines.
If that’s not enough, these kids are getting refreshed and fulfilling their water-fight fantasies with the water guns and balloons that are being sold at kiosks at the destination.
The event forms part of Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq)’s activations under the Sharjah Commerce and Tourism Development Authority (SCTDA)’s ‘Sharjah Summer’ campaign. A series of these edutainment activities are being hosted until 19 August at Shurooq’s leisure, tourist and family destinations in Sharjah, such as Al Qasba, Al Noor Island, Al Montazah Parks, among others.
There’s a lot of entertainment for those youngsters who do not enjoy getting drenched and messy. They can participate in other activities, such as the Yarboa meet and greet, photo-taking and face painting, and help themselves to cotton candy, popcorn coloured balloons, and other summer merchandise.
Al Majaz Waterfront offers visitors a valuable opportunity to win many gifts through the ‘Spend & Win’ and ‘Scratch & Win’ card with the purchase of each entry ticket to the ‘Mini Splash Park’. The cards feature F&B prizes that can be enjoyed at many restaurants and cafés at Al Majaz Waterfront, and kids will be get a Yarboa goody bag for every purchased ticket.
