At the Zamalek Aquarium Grotto, Cairo Flea Market and Wasabi organised this week its annual "Mother's Day Festival," offering the ultimate shopping experience for products handmade in Egypt, alongside activities for kids and adults, as well as food and live music.
Starting 11am and running to 7pm, the day also included Queen of the House, where mothers sit and wear a crown and have photos taken with her children. There was also a Wall of Gratitude, a free sketch for mothers, a photo booth, and much more.
