4- Dubai Celebrations
If you happen to spending the holidays in Dubai then make sure to be around the Dubai Marina or JBR for the fireworks display over The Beach and Bluewaters, with an Ain Dubai backdrop.
Or head over to Dubai Festival City Mall where an ‘Imagine show’ is set to be turned into a fire, lasers and lights show, and will play Saudi music until Monday night.
We also can’t wait to see Burj Khalifa lit with the Saudi flag tonight! Along with a special Dubai Fountain rendition of the country’s national anthem.
