UAE National Day at Festival Bay

- From 1.30pm to 11.15pm
Where: Festival Bay, Dubai Festival City Mall
Here’s a roundup of what’s in store…
Witness sky-high flypast stunts by Al Fursan
The celebrations kick off with an incredible jet flypast by Al Fursan, the aerobatics demonstration team of the UAE. Translating to ‘The Knights’, Al Fursan is set to ‘wow’ the crowds with its impressive sky-high acts.
Watch Jet Pack performers defy gravity
A very special highlight of Dubai Festival City Mall’s National Day celebrations will be the Jet Pack performers. Make sure you watch carefully as the international Jet Pack performers will emerge from the water!
Check out the jaw-dropping aerial helium act
Don’t miss the jaw-dropping aerial helium act above Festival Bay’s two helipads; this will feature two ladies performing astonishing acrobatic stunts as they dangle from helium balloons!
Enjoy traditional Emirati dance shows
From 3pm onwards, Festival Bay is set to feature performances by Al Ayala dancers (also known as Yowalah dancers). Showcasing the traditional group dance of the UAE, you’ll get a glimpse of the country’s culture through live music and dance.
See the sky light up (twice!)
Now this is one BIG finale you don’t want to miss! Dubai Festival City Mall will have two epic firework displays across Festival Bay at 9pm and 11pm. The lead up to this will be a new, one time-only IMAGINE performance which will pay tribute to traditional Emirati culture. IMAGINE’s existing daily shows Star Dancer and A Child’s Dream will also continue to be shown throughout the evening.
