Celebrate Eid al-Adha at The Dubai Mall

Expect Arabian folklore storytelling, virtual reality games and exclusive shopping deals

Celebrate Eid al-Adha at The Dubai Mall

Looking for a spot to celebrate Eid al-Adha with the family? Look no further, as The Dubai Mall is put-ting on a host of special activities just for the occasion.

From today (Tuesday August 21) until Saturday August 25, the city’s massive shopping centre wants everyone to enjoy a selection of free entertainment.

Playing a leading role is Sheibitna, a grandfatherly figure in Arabian folklore, who will be sharing stories and telling words of wisdom at the Souk Atrium. He’ll even be giving out special “Eidya gifts” to the little ones.

VR Park is also joining in on the fun, offering a list of different virtual reality (VR) experiences and interactive games.

The rest of Dubai will also be in full swing over the next few days, too, with a selection of dazzling firework displays happening throughout the city and even more events at Dubai Festival City and The Beach.

If you’re looking for more bargain shopping deals though, you’ll want to head over to Sharjah, which is hosting the Grand Summer Discounts Sale, but be quick, it ends today.

Free. Tue Aug 31-Sat Aug 25. Open 10am-midnight. The Dubai Mall, Downtown Du-bai, www.thedubaimall.com (04 362 7500).
