Di­wali by the wa­ter

Friday - - THE WEEKEND GUIDE -

In true Dubai fash­ion, Al Seef is cel­e­brat­ing the turn in the weather un­til the end of the year with the Al Seef Creek Fes­ti­val – the creek wa­ter­front des­ti­na­tion by Mer­aas will host weekly car­ni­vals, ac­tiv­i­ties and live en­ter­tain­ment shows that will al­low you to have a great time in the great out­doors with your fam­ily. Un­til Novem­ber 10, Di­wali cel­e­bra­tions con­tinue with live per­for­mances of Bol­ly­wood, Bhangra, semi-clas­si­cal dances, a spe­cial Di­wali mar­ket for all that last-minute shop­ping and fire­works on Novem­ber 8. There’s also a Guin­ness Book of Records chal­lenge at­tempt for the largest diya light­ing at Al Seef Dhow Deck on Novem­ber 10.

Out in Abu Dhabi, Yas Wa­ter­world is cel­e­brat­ing the fes­ti­val of lights to­day from 7pm-11pm. Along with af­ter-dark ac­cess to the wa­ter­park’s many rides, slides and at­trac­tions you also get to dive into au­then­tic In­dian food, in­ter­ac­tive ac­tiv­i­ties and beach games.

Imag­ine, the wa­ter, laser and fire­works show at Dubai Fes­ti­val City will play out to the tune of Bol­ly­wood hit Jai Ho in cel­e­bra­tion of Di­wali. Great weather, A.R Rah­man’s feel­good an­them in the back­ground and a sky full of fire­works? Sounds like a lit Di­wali.
