The sky will light up for Saudi National Day…

Today, Monday September 23, marks the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s 89th National Day. To celebrate, Dubai has a few exciting plans in store tonight to share support for our neighbours.

Firstly you can go and check out one of the following places to find a spectacular free fireworks display, or alternatively check out Downtown Dubai where the Burj Khalifa will be showcasing a one-off fountain show in celebration of the momentous day.


The Pointe

On Monday September 23, guests at The Pointe will be able to enjoy dazzling fireworks displays, top dining deals, kids’ entertainment, and much, much more. There’ll be dining discounts too, with 25 per cent off restaurants including Seafood Kitchen, Hook & Cook, Asian District, Palapa, Acapella and Piazza Pizza.

If you head down to Bluewaters this evening you can expect to see a stunning fireworks display from the island. The show will begin at 8.30pm so make sure you find a great spot to catch all the action of the evening.
