May Day Madness

NEWGIZA, the sprawling new community settled high above the pyramids, is holding a day of fun in the sun for all the family...

In most parts of Western Europe, May Day marked the end of the harsh winter months, welcomed by the beginning of summer, and optimistically looked forward to bright and productive months. It was celebrated through a major annual festival with music, dancing and games.

We’d like to believe this is the inspiration behind the May Day event, hosted by NEWGIZA in collaboration with Lavish, this Friday May 17th.The theme of the event is ‘family’; therefore it will cater to all age groups, providing a day full of live entertainment, amazing food, shopping, Kids activities and more.

Live entertainment performances include the five member band that add a fresh and new genre to the Egyptian local band music scene, Abo wel Shabab, the popular and talented band who shot to notoriety after performed on Al Bernameg, The Percussion Show, and live DJ entertainment throughout the day.You won’t be left hungry because there will be food from; La Pietra, Karma, La Aroma, Abu Shakra, Crave, TBS, ICE, Exotic (cotton candy and popcorn), Cairo Kitchen, and our favourite cart in town, Bob’s Hot Dogs!

There will also be something for the fashionistas attending. For the very first time all three bazaar organisers (El Hawanem, Feminine Touch, and Bazarna) are coming together to provide a "Hand in Hand Bazaar" shopping area full of exhibitors.

And of course, they can’t forget about the kids. There will be kids activities all day including pony rides(OMG PONIES!!), face painting, arts  and crafts, aqua games (brought by Adrenalin), balloon-making and a whole lot of fun!

Now, if you didn’t already know, late last year NEWGIZA announced its partnership with the Real Madrid Foundation Academy, marking the first time in Real Madrid's history to inaugurate a technical school outside of Spain, which represented a milestone in the progress of sports education in Egypt. For this reason, football fans will love this event, as the Real Madrid Foundation Academy will host mini-soccer games and a freestyle competition on the day!

This is the first event of its kind to be held at NEWGIZA and we don’t think we’ve ever seen an event this fun-packed. May Day will be starting from 11am – 8pm, and will be held on the NEWGIZA premises at KM22 Cairo Alex Desert Road. Don’t miss it!
