There will be two shows on weekdays at 6:30 and 8:30pm. There will be four shows on weekends (Thursday to Saturday) with a show each hour starting at 7pm.

Wafi will entertain shoppers and visitors with a vibrant carnival display by various performers including jugglers, stilt walkers, unicyclists and musicians to showcase the festive feeling of DSF.

Exciting purchase-linked promotions are also happening at Wafi.
The Nissan Grand Raffle is giving shoppers the chance to drive home a Nissan SUV every day.

With a minimum spend of Dh200 in participating retail outlets, shoppers will enter a daily draw to win one SUV from among a collection of Patrol, Armada, X-Trail, Murano, Xterra, Pathfinder and Qashqai.

Additionally, all coupons will enter the grand draw in which ten winners will walk away with a Nissan model each.

Wafi will also host the much-awaited Family Health Festival on February 3-8.

Visitors can receive free individual check-ups and consultations, and participate in health quiz shows and various live entertainment activities.

The popular event is organised annually to help generate health awareness among UAE residents and has proven to be a success.
