City Centre Bahrain delighted visitors with traditional ‘Gergaoun’ celebrations


City Centre Bahrain, the premier shopping, entertainment and lifestyle destination in the Kingdom of Bahrain, highlighted its commitment to fostering the Kingdom’s culture and traditions by hosting its annual ‘Gergaoun’ celebration in conjunction with the Ministry of Social Development, creating great moments for visitors, on 16 May, 2019. 

City Centre Bahrain was full of smiles and laughter as children and families arrived dressed in their best traditional clothes and took part in the Gergaoun festivities. Little ones enjoyed singing songs, marching along to the beats of a live traditional Bahraini band and dancing along with the traditional mascots in the mall’s Central Galleria. Children toured the mall with the main ‘Fraisah’ (a traditional figure of the festival) for Gergaoun celebrations, to collect Gergaoun, goodie bags full of treats, from City Centre Bahrain and its participating retailers. 

During its 13th ‘Make a Difference’ campaign visitors are encouraged to donate gently used clothes, books, toys and non-perishable food items at the special Donation Station located near Gate 4, on the ground floor.

City Centre Bahrain invites visitors to enjoy the soothing and spiritual ambiance and the beautiful back drop of Ramadan themed décor.
