The pleasant weather on the second day of Eid Al Adha was the great reason for the residents to change their plans of indoor gatherings to move outside and enjoy the holidays.

Besides the annual Eid Al Adha holidays were the perfect time to celebrate special moments with friends and family, especially as there’s so much to see, do, eat and enjoy during the Dubai Summer Surprises (DSS) festival of fun.

With the extra-long Eid public holiday officially announced, residents and visitors can make the most of a super DSS calendar of events created with fun-seekers and families in mind.

Visitors to the city’s malls, restaurant­s, venues and landmarks will discover a great selection of offers, activities and more throughout the Eid Al Adha break. Organised by Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishm­ent (DFRE), all of the stores, malls and venues taking part in this year’s Eid Al Adha festivitie­s and DSS will follow important health and safety rules including social distancing and the wearing of masks at all times.

DFRE highlights some of the best familyfrie­ndly events taking place over Eid Al Adha in Dubai:
