Sharjah: Al Majaz Waterfront in Sharjah is hosting the final week of its Pirate Village, a feature of the facility’s Mini Splash Park.

Children visiting the Pirate Village this weekend will be able to enjoy a host of nautical-themed activities, including pirate wars with water-filled cannonballs, hunts for hidden treasure and giant bubble making workshops. Also, there will be mime shows featuring the Jack Sparrow character, who is the star of the Pirates of the Caribbean movie franchise.

“The Pirate Village at our Mini Splash Park has been a spectacular success and we want to thank all children and parents who have joined in with the activities on offer — it is their enthusiasm that has made it all so much fun,” said Mohammad Al Mazroui, manager of Al Majaz Waterfront.

“From July 15, little ones at the park have enjoyed engaging with the pirate stilt walkers roaming the park, have made the most of the face-painting sessions that have transformed them into swashbuckling sailors. We look forward to delivering even more thrills, excitement and learning experiences at the Pirate Village right up to August 15.

Pirate Village formed part of the park’s summer entertainment programme aimed at providing youngsters with an environment to play and interact with their peers, to develop their social skills and to make the summer holidays fun.
