Editor’s Picks: Top Five Things to Do This Labour Day Weekend
Labour Day, May Day, Bank Holiday or whatever else you choose to call it; all we know is we are all in for a great weekend. And to make sense of everything, we give you the Editor Picks of what’s hot, what’s hotter and what you just cannot afford to miss.
1 | Watch Avengers: Age of Ultron
A no-brainer. The most exciting action flick of 2015 opens in all theatres across the country this weekend. A great choice for anything; a date or family time- the kids will absolutely love it. See the full movie schedule here.
And remember you can buy your IMAX ticket on Kenyabuzz.
2 | Catch the biggest fight of the century
It doesn’t matter whether you’re a diehard boxing fan or a peace-sign throwing pacifist, you simply have to watch this mega fight. Just like the 2008 Obama acceptance speech or the fall of the Berlin Wall, Mayweather vs Pacquiao is one of those historic moments that transcend personal taste. Everyone will be tuning in.
How to watch: DStv Premium, Supersport 2 and SS6 HD.
Special screening: Watch the fight on the biggest most vivid screen in town, at IMAX. Buy your ticket here and book the best seat in the house- it will feel just like being ringside.
3 | Nerea with super boy band Sauti Sol
Their new song featuring Amos & Josh has captured the hearts and minds of Kenyans. And you can groove with the soulful foursome at four awesome gigs around town over the Labour Day weekend.
April 30, 7pm – Kili Kiddos Gala Dinner at Nairobi Serena Hotel
May 1 & 2, 6pm – Sauti Sol Cubano Tour at Cubano Greenspan and Cubano Rongai respectively
May 2, 12pm – Rhino Charge Team 23 Party at Karura Forest
4 | Journey into the magical
Our country has the best natural scenery anywhere in the world; and what an opportunity for backpackers and explorers who have four wonderful days to satisfy their wanderlust.
Hiking, trekking, climbing, riding, mountaineering, natural spa pools, game drives, skydiving, white sandy beaches; you name it, Kenya’s got it.
5 | Eat, drink, shop and make merry
The sun ain’t shining but it’s no reason not to celebrate and be glad. And what better way to lift the gloomy forecasts than some good food, fine wine and a new pair of shoes… all with great company.
And at the Sankara, they will be pairing an exquisite menu with rich flavors of Simonsig Wines. RSVP to email@example.com to book your slot.
