Stand a chance to win Central Square vouchers if you take the best selfie with your mom. The competition ends on 20 May.
Mothers play an irreplaceable role in nurturing everyone around them, and the world has dedicated one day when they can put their feet up and be pampered in return. Boutique shopping centre Central Square at Menlyn Maine honoured mothers in South Africa with the word “Mom” represented in all South African languages in the precinct’s “mood tree”.
Central Square celebrated the Mother’s Day weekend from 10 to 13 May, but every day of the year is Mother’s Day at Central Square. Moms are honoured and loved for 365 days in the environs of Pretoria’s vibrant green city. Those who missed out on the weekend’s activities can still honour their moms until 20 May at the selfie stage and enter the “Selfie for Mom” competition.
The weekend was filled with unforgettable experiences as mothers loaded up on some “me time”. A popular stop-off for kids was the craft zone where children could create unique gifts for that special person called Mom. Children had fun expressing themselves and finding meaningful ways of thanking their moms.
The central piazza was pretty in pink with a bandstand playing cool tunes, while musicians created a nostalgic vibe with much-loved classics. The fun and love went on well into the evenings. Alan Hayward crooned his way through a set of vocals Ol’ Blue Eyes would be proud of, while Bogan Pashovski provided smooth keyboards, with Lyndi-Lee Smith and Ayo on vocals, created an ambience to be remembered.
A favourite amongst visitors was the “Video for Mom” booth where people could record a message for their mom to hear. Whole families, sons, husbands, daughters and children recorded heartfelt messages for moms. These can be seen on Facebook searching the hashtag #MaineMothersDay
The perfect weather added to the pleasure on the piazza as families enjoyed a meal at the outdoor eateries that were packed to the brim. Many visitors attended the spellbinding performances of Dynamo at the Sun Arena, also in the Menlyn Maine precinct.
Menlyn Maine is Pretoria’s vibrant green city precinct featuring sculpture parks, outdoor spaces, tree-lined avenues and shopping centre. Central Square is flourishing thanks to its emphasis on creating memorable experiences. With Mother’s Day and other special occasions, Central Square is fast becoming the community’s chosen destination for entertainment, dining, gifts and family gatherings.
