Picnic With Souad Massi? Yes, Please!

Picnic basket, burgers ,and balloons; your fairy tale picnic is about to kick off at Oriana's at Cairo Festival City, with one heck of a special guest.

We've always seen those fantastic picnic parties with the cute little baskets on TV but were gutted that we never actually went to one, considering Egypt's lack of green space and, well, authentic picnic culture. Imagine our delight and surprise when CairoFestival City announced that it will be holding a picnic event at its residential gated community, Oriana, this Friday the 20th of May! 

Consider this a chance to enjoy the remains of spring in the outdoors before summer kicks in and we all get burnt to a crisp, all while chilling and listening to glorious live performances by the incredible Souad Massi and her angelic voice, and premier Jazz vocalist Ahmed Harfoush. 

The event is going to be totally exclusive, meaning that a limited number of invitations are available, with priority given to Oriana homeowners, but that each invitation allows two adults and any number of children under six years old. The best part? Each invitation guarantees guests a picnic basket just for them! This sounds like the perfect opportunity to do something really unique on a weekend with family considering there's going to be a whole shopping bazaar by Bazarna Events, a raffle draw, a kids area just for games, and a whole range of your favourite food outlets. 

Speaking of food, from gourmet burgers to Italian gelato, the sheer amount of food outlets guarantees that there's something there for everyone. Manoushe Street, Tamara Lebanese Bistro, BurgerFuel and Bybike are just a few of the outlets that will be working around the clock to make your tummies very, very happy after a whole day of running and playing around. 

Make sure to catch all the details of the event on Facebook, and check out Cairo Festival City on Facebook as well.
