This festival is a chance for the whole clan to catch a visual treat like no other, so grab the kiddos and spend the day beach-bound, soaking up some vitamin D…

We are already huge fans of Ripe and The Journey, so this event (complete with a festive Easter egg hunt), is right up our street! Get your mini farmer’s curiosity running wild out in nature at The Journey, where they get to pot a plant and nurture their own little Ripe Organic Veggie Patch – too cute. The pop-up market will be stocked with irresistible nibbles to keep the older little ones (the mamas and papas) happy too!

When: Saturday, 19 March
Where: The Journey, Dubai, UAE
How much: Free activities!

Rumour has it there will even be a Magic Phil show at 4:30, face painting AND an Easter Egg Hunt, so there’ll be plenty to keep the tinies busy whilst we lounge by the lakeside.

New movies are always a treat, and this tale promises to be the biggest kiddie blockbuster of the year! Relax with a (large) popcorn and give the whole fam’s vocal chords some down-time catching Disney’s latest on the big screen. From the largest elephant to the smallest shrew (sounds a bit like the family…), the city of Zootopia is full of adventure – and we can’t wait to get in on the fun!
