Festive fun as Santa makes a pre-December 25 stop-off in Dubai

Festive cheer descended on Media City for the full run of the weekend as the Dubai Christmas Festival threw open its gates. A giant snowglobe with feathers floating around kept the kids entertained, while Lime Tree Cafe’s mince pies with custard proved a hit for the event's more mature visitors. Put on by the team behind Taste of Dubai, the fact the Christmas fest didn’t operate on a voucher system was a hit with many attendees, as were the carols and songs from the school choir on stage. We would have liked to have seen more stalls to keep the punters interested, and festive decorations (or at least a handful of elves), as the magic of Christmas seemed elusive overall.
