And here’s why…

Dazzling fireworks displays lit up skies all over Dubai on New Year’s Eve to ring in 2019, but if you missed them, there’s plenty more opportunities to see fireworks in Dubai this month.

Why, you ask? Well, it’s all part of Dubai Shopping Festival, the annual retail extravaganza that’s running across the city until February 2.

And as well as flash sales, deals and bargains across the city, you’ll be able to catch regular weekend fireworks displays at a number of locations as part of the city-wide celebrations.

Firework displays will illuminate the skies at La Mer on Thursdays and Fridays at 9pm. A stunning fire show that includes fire dancers and fire breathers follows every Thursday to Saturday at 9:30pm.

Then, over at Al Seef by Dubai Creek, there will be fireworks every Thursday and Friday between 27 December and 1 February at 8pm, 8.30pm and 9pm.

Headed to JBR? Then you’ll also be able to catch the displays there, taking place every Thursday and Friday at 8pm until February 2.
