There are plenty of fun, family (and budget)-friendly options taking place in and around Dubai in honour of Saudi National Day. Celebrations are set to begin Thursday evening, with everything from traditional Saudi music to larger scale concerts. Headline performers will include acts from local artists and talents, including Emirati singers Shamma Hamdan and Balqees Fathi.
Singer Balqees is set to kick off the weekend in soulful style on Thursday at City Walk, while Arabs Got Talent finalist, Shamma Hamdan, takes to the stage at La Mer the following evening, September 20th.
Fireworks lovers can settle in to the sands of the Beach and Bluewaters area as celebratory rockets arch up high over Ain Dubai. Separate displays will also light up near The Pointe, on Palm Jumeirah, while over at Dubai Festival City Mall be sure to stop by during the weekend for a special presentation from IMAGINE, which will enthrall in a spectacular display of fire, lasers, and lights, set to traditional Saudi music.
Take it Downtown
