The Weekender: A car boot sale, chocoholics brunch, party in the park and much more!

Play & PartyPost Category - Play & PartyPlay & Party

Two things we love – eating and shopping – and this weekend you can combine them both mamas! Take the fam to a chocoholics brunch at Sheraton, Mall of the Emirates or picnic in the park at Ripe Market and pick up a Christmas pressie or two. For preloved shopping try out that British classic and grab a bargain, from baby items to clothing and toys, they’ll all be for sale at The Dubai British School car boot sale. It’s all here in The Weekender!
