Not only is 2nd December a long weekend for everyone, Dubai Festival City Mall is marking happy day with a grand show of sparkles.
Celebrate 47 years since the seven emirates became united with a line-up of free events that start at 2pm on the Sunday. Once darkness falls, rockets go up and there’s two what are sure to be impressive displays of fireworks, at 8pm and 10pm.
To keep us entertained between the blasts, there’s a special edition of Festival City Mall’s water and light show IMAGINE. Sending lasers and smoke across Festival Bay, this Guinness World Record holder is always a ‘stop everything and video this’ experience, so we can’t wait to see what’s lined up for National Day.
Get there early to grab your spot on the waterfront and see performances from 2pm that will include the traditional Ayala Emirati folk dance. Or head inside the mall to check out 400 stores and 75 places to eat.
From 2pm on Sunday, 2nd December. Fireworks at 8pm and 10pm. Admission is free. www.dubaifestivalcity.com
