Chocoholics, if you’ve always craved a trip to Willy Wonka’s factory, visiting Dubai Marina mall this weekend comes close – the mall is hosting a Chocolate Fiesta.
Starting today until April 22, the mall is choc-a-bloc with themed activities that would make an Oompa Loompa proud – workshops on chocolate sculpting and painting, chocolate calligraphy and cup cake decorating; a candy house; chocolate egg hunts for children, a chocolate fashion show, an outdoor screening of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and a live performance by Willy Wonka and the Oompa Loompas.
There will be plenty of edible chocolate there too – chocolate fountains, dessert food trucks and a chocolate bazaar should satisfy your sweet tooth but for the ultimate sugar rush via chocolate check out the chocolate spa.
In case you’re feeling lucky à la Charlie, purchase a train ticket for the Dubai Marina Mall train and receive a free chocolate bar that just might have a golden ticket hidden inside. Golden ticket winners can redeem it on items at the chocolate bazaar.
