Due to popular demand, the closing date of Global Village has been extended by a week and the village will now close on 13 April. Global Village asked social media followers through polls across Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram if they would like the season to be extended, and within two days more than 150,000 followers responded positively.
Besides the regular fun fair at Global Village, upcoming attractions during Season 23 include the International Day of Happiness on 20 March, Mothers’ Day on 21 March, and the Festival of Colours on 22 March.
Bader Anwahi, CEO of Global Village said, “Our decision to extend the season comes as a result to the numourous demands we are receiving through the various communication channels with our guests and stakeholders, indicating the ever huge success this season is recording. Our guests from residents to tourists will now have the chance to enjoy the international shopping and dining experiences as they interact with the various cultures, as well as the ever popular Carnaval rides and attractions for one more week.”
