City Centre Bahrain—the largest shopping, leisure and entertainment destination in Bahrain—in conjunction with the Ministry of Labour & Social Development, hosted its traditional Gergaoun celebrations, for the delight of visitors of all ages.

To mark Gergaoun, which falls on the 14th night of the Holy Month, families and friends celebrated at the lifestyle destination and embraced the traditional Bahraini event. Little ones, dressed in thobes and jalabiyas, toured the mall accompanied by the ‘Fraisah’, a traditional figure of the festival.

Visitors toured around the mall and sang Gergaoun songs along the way, led by a live band playing traditional instruments and drums. Additionally, little ones collected Gergaoun from participating retail outlets and were all smiles carrying their bags full of candy and treats.

The annual Gerganoun event is part of the wider Ramadan celebrations hosted at City Centre Bahrain this year which include the 10th annual ‘Make a Difference’ Ramadan Campaign by Majid Al Futtaim. This Ramadan, visitors and local communities are encouraged to donate essential everyday items such as books, clothes, toys and non-perishable foods which will be distributed, in partnership with The Islamic Association, to families in need.

City Centre Bahrain is also marking the Holy Month with a beautiful themed décor, creating an atmosphere of peace and tranquility. Visitors can enjoy traditional Arabic hospitality with complimentary coffee and dates, as well as live entertainment by Oud players, setting the tone for relaxed and enjoyable evenings.
