With the Expo 2020 Dubai just 3 years away, what better way to celebrate than with a beachside party (Dubai style!). Thousands of people will be bringing their families down to The Beach JBR this weekend for an action-packed afternoon of live music, Expo-themed activities and a 6-metre high zip line. Did we mention the event is free, too?!
