Forum Algarve, the large shopping mall on the outskirts of Faro, is introducing a fun park for the summer. The Forum Summer Wonderland will be active between July 27th and August 19th, in the main square of the mall, to be one of its biggest attractions. For families with young children, it’s a good excuse to take a walk in the mall.
Forum Summer Wonderland
The initiative will include a mini giant wheel, air bungee for children (with a weight limit), trains, bumper cars, and more. It will be open between 3 p.m and 6 p.m and then between 7 p.m. and 11 p.m., on labour days; on weekends, mornings will be added to this schedule (between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.). Extra good news: the event is free!
The Forum is a typical example of a modern European shopping mall. With more than 100 shops, it also includes a supermarket, a restaurant square with 20 different options, cinemas and 2300 parking spots. The open-air space was designed for visitors to take advantage of the Algarvian climate, throughout the year.
Tradition and modernity
We’ve been talking lately about local fairs, gastronomical events and others, usually outside the mainstream tourist advertising, where expats could go, taste and feel the genuine Portuguese culture and especially the habits and traditions of Algarve. The Snail Festival, Lagoa Wine Show and the Codfish festival were the examples we’ve shown here.
But, of course, let’s not forget that there’s hardly a region more cosmopolitan and international in Portugal than Algarve, at level with Lisbon and Madeira. Not only people are really used to deal with foreign expats (tourism is now a half a century old industry in this region), but also the region has all modern and globalised infra-structures that one could expect. Forum Algarve is such an example of this.
