Sharjah, August 27, 2008
Ramadaniat Al Qasba 2008, Al Qasba's popular Ramadan programme will once again feature premier events keeping with the spirit of Ramadan, the Al Qasba Development Authority said on Wednesday.
Dina Al Nakhi, events manager at Al Qasba Development Authority said: "Adapting the "Silk Road" theme this time round, the Al Qasba walkways will be dotted with the cultural and traditional aspects of the bygone era that spread across from China to Europe extending over 8,000km in 114BC.
"Al Qasba will be transformed into a site of cultural diversity representing the route where many countries exchanged goods such as silk and spices.
"Pavilions of a few Silk Road representative countries will be on display across the Al Qasba walkways including China, India, Iran, and the Levant region, with the UAE hosting a heritage area in the Al Qasba tent."
The pavilions will also provide information about the specific countries and conduct various workshops. Visitors can also patronise the food and merchandise kiosks at each country pavilion.
Together with the Silk Road theme, Ramadaniat Al Qasba 2008 will once again bring alive the popular Al Qasba Tent.
The Ramadan nights' ambience will be recreated with the help of traditional lighting, delectable delicacies and a great family ambience.
The "Heritage Village" inside the Al Qasba Tent is another event designed to capture vistors' senses and imaginations as well as displaying the traditional Emirati way of life.
Keeping in tune with the spirituality of the month, Ramadaniat Al Qasba 2008 will once again host the Al Eman Oasis.
Ramadaniat Al Qasba will also create a special space for children in "The Fun Zone".
With a play ground and a variety of games and tournaments tailored for young and older children on safe and friendly grounds, parents can catch up with the spirit of Ramadan in peace.
