A great day out that’s guaranteed to end with a bang…

The Zayed Heritage Festival is a celebration of UAE and world heritage, a collection of pavilions, parades, performances and interactive exhibitions that add up to an awesome family day out.

Currently taking place in the Al Wathba region of Abu Dhabi, there are events scheduled up to February 2021.

Visitors will find food trucks; a gigantic fountain with water display every 30 minutes; craft activities; carnival rides; laser tag; car shows; a dedicated kid’s village; horse, camel and falconry shows; sailboat races; cooking demonstrations; raffles; prize draws; and UAE heritage exhibitions.

And importantly for NYE purposes… They absolutely LOVE a firework display.

Record-breaking whizz-bangs

Zayed Heritage Festival is celebrating the transition from 2020 to 2021 with two of the UAE’s favourite things, fireworks and breaking records.

On Thursday, December 31, they’ll be igniting the light and letting it shine (a la Katy Perry) in a Guinness World Record-breaking 35-minute long firework display.
