It is planned and designed in a way that there is something for everyone - luxury goods are on sale for adults, games for kids, fitness and sports for the health enthusiasts, a painting competition for art lovers and an elaborate food court for food lovers. A weekend filled with laughter and amusement is a perfect way to spend quality family time together."
