e-junior, the exclusive UAE kids channel from E-Vision, had a grand celebration on the occasion of Haq Al Lailah with hundreds of kids getting together with e-junior officials at Dubai Children's City to experience the joy of this wonderful tradition.

Prior to the event, e-junior had organized a creative art contest where it had requested kids to give full rein to their creativity and design their own hand made candy bags using recycled material. All kids were then requested to bring their individually designed handmade bags to the e-junior Haq Al Lailah event, where the best bags won e-junior goodies and sponsored vouchers from Candylicious, a Dubai based candy store.

Making it a truly memorable day for all the kids who attended, e-junior also organized a candy race with loads of goodies being won by the winners. The kids also got the chance to meet some of their favourite cartoon characters "Dana & Friends" & "Murshid" at the event. They sang along with them and also got their pictures taken with these cartoon characters. On the occasion, the kids also participated in a fashion show contest comprising of traditional UAE national dresses.

"For e-junior, the magic of Haq Al Lailah is a great occasion to get together with kids and help them enjoy the festival to the fullest," said Fatiha Bensalem, Manager, e-junior. "It's a wonderful opportunity for kids here to connect with their roots and U.A.E traditions while having fun. At e-junior, we look forward to many more happy occasions like these in order to play an integral part in the lives of our loyal fan base. "

She added," We would also like to take this opportunity to thank our sponsors-Dubai Children's City, Candylicious, Mamy Snacks, Tiffany and Unikai for making this such a successful and fun-filled event for kids."

Haq Al Lailah which literally means "For this Night" is a cultural festival in the UAE and across GCC 15 days prior to the holy month of Ramadan, where kids wear traditional dresses and go around to people's houses asking for candies and treats.
