Vampires, ninjas & more: Catch these free shows at Dubai Festival City Mall


Sponsored: Dubai Festival City Mall is the place to be for Dubai Summer Surprises…

Dubai Summer Surprises is here, and that means six weeks of sales across the city’s malls. But at Dubai Festival City Mall, it’s not just about the retail therapy – oh no. The massive shopping and dining destination has a packed schedule of activities and events for all ages to enjoy.

Love all things spooky? The mall will be transforming into Dracula’s Castle for a week of Hotel Transylvania shows.

Until June 30, your little ones can watch Mavis, Frankenstein, Murray and Count Dracula take to the stage, before joining the characters for a special meet & greet. There will also be daily kids’ workshops inspired by the movie.

You’ll find the stage on the ground floor of Festival Square, while the workshops can be found on Level 1 next to The Cheesecake Factory. Workshops take place every day from 2pm to 10pm, and the stage shows and meet & greets are held every evening at 5pm, 7.30pm, and 9pm.

That’s not the only movie-themed fun to be had. From July 5 to 28, a band of ninjas led by Lloyd and Master Wu are coming to Dubai’s first ever Lego Ninjago Movie Zone at Dubai Festival City Mall.

Shoppers can dress like a ninja, build a ninja, or enjoy a meet & greet with characters from the blockbuster movie. You can also take part in different fun experiences for your chance to win theme park tickets and cool Ninjago prizes.

And there’s plenty more where that came from, with roaming entertainment every evening during DSS, culminating in a free concert from Arabs Got Talent star Hala Turk on August 4.

Plus, shoppers that spend Dhs300 at any outlet in the mall will have the chance to enter the weekly and grand prize draws, with gift vouchers worth up to Dhs200,000 up for grabs as well as a brand-new 2018 Lexus NX F-Sport Platinum.

What are you waiting for? We’ll see you there…
