1/2

The second season of #WOWJBR is well underway, and while December means festive celebrations, it’s just announced a whole new act.

Taking place on Thursday December 6 until Saturday and the following week on Thursday December 13 until Saturday December 15, the streets of JBR will be filled with '70s, '80s and '90s vibes.

Expect live performances of the top hits from yesteryear, old-school hip-hop dancers, retro stilt walkers, Michael Jackson lookalikes and even a classic Elvis Presley tribute act so you can get your Jailhouse Rock on.

Be there from 4pm until 10pm on Thursday and 4pm on Friday and Saturday to take a trip back in time.

There are many more fun-filled shows and activities #WOWJBR will be putting on, including a whole lot of wintry activities throughout December, along with holograms and 3D mapping along the streets, and a “larger-than-life Rubik’s Cube” that anyone can try their hand at solving to win prizes.

Visitors can also expect a focus on the “mind and body” throughout January, an international theme overlapping with Chinese New Year celebrations in February, along with art installations, roaming art displays and a delectable food festival to finish off the season in March.

December is filled with festive entertainment, including Time Out Dubai’s festive brunch club, Christmas Day brunches and huge tree lighting ceremonies.

In the meantime, get out those dancing shoes.
Free. Thu Dec 6-Sat Dec 8 and Thu Dec 13-Sat Dec 15. Thu 6pm-10pm; Fri-Sat 4pm-10pm. The Walk, JBR (800 637227).
