City Centre Muscat, City Centre Qurum celebrate Qaranqasho in Oman

Muscat: Qaranqasho, will be hosted by City Centre Muscat and City Centre Qurum on June 20 and 21 from 8pm to 11pm.
The celebrations at the two Majid Al Futtaim shopping malls in Oman will see families dress their little ones in traditional clothes and receive sweets and treats to take home.
Qaranqasho, a time-honoured Omani custom recognised on the 14th and 15th day of the Holy Month of Ramadan, not only marks the middle of the blessed month, but is also a unique practice to motivate and encourage young children to observe fasting.
During the much awaited celebrations, children and families visiting the malls will be able to enjoy special activities and hum compositions for sweets as is traditionally done in neighbourhoods throughout the Sultanate.
Fostering culture
The initiative highlights the City Centre malls’ commitment to fostering the Sultanate’s culture and traditions and reinforcing the company’s vision for creating great moments for everyone, every day.
City Centre Muscat and City Centre Qurum are open from 10am to 1am throughout Ramadan, and offer a wide range of Arabic and international dining options for Iftar or Suhur.
City Centre Muscat is the first and largest lifestyle shopping destination in Oman, attracting more than 10 million visitors annually.
With a total of 70,484 square metres in retail space, City Centre Muscat is home to more than 200 international and local lifestyle brands, many of which have made their debut in the Sultanate. Major stores at the malls include the Carrefour hypermarket, Home Centre, Marks & Spencer, Zara and Sun & Sand Sports.
