Dubai Festival City Mall is all set to celebrate the UAE’s 50th National Day with a host of family-friendly activities.

The celebrations at the popular mall kick off on November 26 and will run until November 30 with banging activities planned for December 2, too. The best news is, it’s all for free.

Visitors can learn and be entertained by UAE’s traditions including Emirati Al Aala performances, traditional Al-Razfa (a combination of poetry), interact with a falcon (the UAE’s national bird and symbol of strength and heritage). Keep alert for the roaming entertainment at the mall.

Little ones will have plenty of fun as well with a slew of children’s activities available including a themed arts and crafts section.
