Spots across the city will light up for the Eid long weekend…

With the long Eid weekend on its way, you’re probably wondering how to spend your extra days off. And if you’re not jetting off for an Eid escape, there’s plenty of things to do in Dubai. Known for its decadent celebrations to celebrate UAE public holidays, there will be fireworks across Dubai for Eid Al Fitr 2022.

Here’s where to see Eid fireworks in Dubai.

The Pointe

The Pointe’s dazzling fountain show will be complimented by a huge fireworks display on the first day of Eid Al Fitr. Although the first day of Eid is still to be confirmed, it’s likely to be on Monday May 2. Whichever day it does fall, expect to see fireworks light up the skies at The Pointe at 9pm.

Dubai Festival City
