Love boats and lobster? Head on down to the Dubai Pre-Owned Boat Show at Dubai Creek Marina this weekend (Thursday November 9 to Saturday November 11).
Not only is there a whole host of family-friendly activities, there’s a new LobsterFest, too – a dedicated area that offers up a range of tasty lobster dishes from Dhs45.
Of course, there are some great opportunities for buying and selling boats, too.
The show kicks off at 4pm on Thursday November 9. And if you’re heading to the event with your family there are plenty of games, balloons, face painting, arts and crafts, bouncy castles and even a petting zoo.
Meanwhile on Friday there are dragon boat races from 7am, and the event officially opens at noon.
New this year is mum and kids yoga at 4pm on Friday, followed by a sunset yoga session on The Lawn.
Saturday November 11 follows a similar theme, but there are also stand-up paddleboard races for competitive boat show-goers.
“We’re thrilled to host the annual Dubai Pre-Owned Boat Show for the eighth consecutive year,” says Abdulla Ali Al Noon, club manager at Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club.
“It’s an event that has become a pillar of the Dubai event calendar. This year we have introduced LobsterFest to the show to ensure there’s something for everyone and there is no doubt that the calibre of vessels on display will exceed previous years.”
