Eid Fireworks

Dubai loves fireworks and Eid is the best occasion to showcase the best fireworks in town. This year, the celebratory firework displays will be held at various locations across the city, including Dubai Festival City, Al Seef and La Mer.

La Mer Beachside fireworks

La Mer’s shoreline will light up with a gorgeous rainbow of fireworks for the first day of Eid Al Fitr. Bring a blanket to roll out on the sand or grass, and gather an eclectic picnic-style dinner with the family from the district’s many trending restaurants. Alternatively, book a dinner to remember at restaurants such as Sikka Cafe, Miyabi Sushi, Bareburger and Falla, which all sit along the waterfront, offering clear views and a variety of delicious meals to suit all budgets and tastes.

Dubai Festival City

IMAGINE, a record-breaking water, laser and lights show, has choreographed a bespoke spectacle with fireworks for the occasion. Arrive early as there’s plenty to keep you entertained, including traditional dhow rides, family activities and, of course, stellar shopping at Dubai Festival City Mall.

When: 5-6 June, 8pm and 10pm

Al Seef Along the creek

Watch Dubai Creek illuminate on the first day of Eid with a sensational display of flashing colours and lights. Dotted with abras and set before a panorama of the city’s stunning skyline, this neighbourhood is rich in local heritage and buzzing with activity. Al Seef’s diverse waterfront restaurants are a fabulous spot to watch the show, from flavourful Arabic cuisine at Al Hamidieh to zesty meals at Kim’s Singapore Seafood. Arrive early to shop at modern boutiques or wander through the authentic souk selling local handicrafts, jewellery and more by regional craftsmen.
