Christmas in Dubai 2019: Head to Santa's Island at Bluewaters

Santa's Island is back for the festive season at Bluewaters.

Step into Christmas between Thursday December 12 and Wednesday January 1, when Bluewaters is being magically transformed into a holly jolly wonderland that mums, dads and kids will love.

Expect heaps of fun celebrations every day between 4pm to 11pm during the week and from 4pm to midnight from Thursday to Saturday.

Little ones will love the daily Arctic Parade, which promises appearances from a whole host of wintery characters including polar bears, eskimos, Jill n' Jack Frost and even the Ice Queen herself.

In addition, the smallest visitors can enjoy getting their faces painted – Christmas-themed naturally – as well as getting stuck into a variety of games and activities at the various stalls or making their own festive decorations like cards and elf hats at the arts and crafts Christmas workshops, plus cookie decorating is also on offer.

But that's not all. No festive celebration would be complete without a chance to meet the big man in red himself.

Head to Santa's Grotto where Father Christmas will be all ears to hear what the kids want for Christmas – provided they've been good all year of course.

Mums and dads aren't over-looked either.

Parents can indulge in a slew of culinary experiences at the festive market, or rest their weary feet (and enjoy a refreshing beverage or two) at the Parents Grotto.

And all of this while melodious live musicians and carol singers keep everyone entertained and in the festive spirit with a top Christmas play list to make the fun-filled occasion.
Thu Dec 12- Wed Jan 1, 4pm-11pm (week days), 4pm-midnight (Thu-Sat). Bluewaters Dubai, www.bluewatersdubai.ae.
