While you are too busy devouring your Iftar in the evenings and getting hooked on new shows, others spend their weekends doing fun Ramadan activities. Of course, there is a lot you can do this month other than down all that food with yet another cup of tea, and we are here to inform you of where you need to be. We have gathered all the events happening this weekend to get you off your couch and out making memories.
