Marassi Al Bahrain to host Gerga’oon Ramadan event

  • Marassi Beach to host mid-Ramadan festival open to the public
  • Activities to include henna painting, falconry, pottery making and fraisa band

Marassi Beach is to be home to a Gerga’oon festival on 8th June, alive with activities including henna painting, a falcon display, a fraisa drum and dance band, pottery making, live cooking, traditional story-telling and games. Gerga’oon is deeply rooted in Gulf culture, and is normally marked with children dressing in traditional attire and going door-to-door to receive sweets and nuts from neighbours, whilst singing songs. The Marassi Gerga’oon festival will kick off from 9 pm and will be open to the public to enjoy the ongoing activities suited for the whole family.

Daniel Hammond, General Manager of developer Eagle Hills Bahrain, commented: “Gerga’oon is a joyful celebration in Bahraini culture, and on the auspicious occasion this year, Marassi Al Bahrain will transform with colourful decorations, lights and costumes, to bring the spirit of the Holy Month to life within our community.

“I encourage everyone to come and experience the festivities – we welcome people of all backgrounds and cultures – and be a part of this special night at the beautiful venue of Marassi Beach.”

Spanning 875,000sqm, Marassi Al Bahrain is being constructed on the northern shores of the master planned community of Diyar Al Muharraq, forming a key luxury component of Bahrain’s largest private urban project
