Ramadan is just around the corner, and we can't wait for the peace and cheer it brings. The spirit of the Holy Month makes it a busy one, with loads of activities taking place.

We've made you a list of 10 fun and interesting things happening during Ramadan 2021 both in Dubai and Abu Dhabi that will have the whole family soaking up the magic of the month. From shows to Iftar experiences, family activities and even markets - we've got you covered.

1. BOUNCE Ramadan Pass​

Keep your boys and girls active and off the screens this Ramadan with the BOUNCE Ramadan Pass that gives your kids 2 hours access to BOUNCE every day, throughout Ramadan.

Not only is the pass an amazing offer, but as a way to show some love, BOUNCE will be giving a Garmin VivoSmart 4 for FREE when you purchase a BOUNCE Ramadan Pass. The Garmin smartwatch is a great way for your kiddos to track their activity at BOUNCE, at home and elsewhere.

BOUNCE is a safe place to bring your kids for 2 hours a day (drop in at any time during the venue's working hours), and a perfect indoor activity now that it's starting to get warmer outdoors.

The Ramadan Pass is available at BOUNCE in Al Quoz, Dubai Festival City and Abu Dhabi.
