The capital’s free Winter Carnival is back this year

And it promises to be one yuletide event that you and your family won’t want to miss. 

Winter is on the way and so is this fab carnival, which promises to warm the cockles of your heart.

The Yas Winter Carnival – taking place from 11th to 16th December at Gateway Park South on Yas Island, in Abu Dhabi – promises a wide range of activities for six days.

Some of this year’s highlights include a snow play zone where kids can toss snowballs and build a snowman,  fun rides, a huge snow slide and winter market selling toys, accessories, home decor and more for some Yuletide shopportunities.

Other must-try and see attractions include a gingerbread decorating workshop, jaw-dropping tricks from magicians, a kids’ zone and hourly snow falls.  

There’s a giant Christmas tree of course and dazzling fireworks will light up the night sky every evening at 9pm.

Adding to the festive feel are a number of choirs from various Abu Dhabi schools that will belt out festive favourites to entertain the crowds.

Perhaps the best news is that entry to the carnival is free.
