If you’re choosing to stay behind in the UAE this Eid break, we’ve got you covered. There’s still plenty of family-friendly activities in Dubai and Abu Dhabi to keep you entertained over the six-day break. A staple of Eid in the UAE is the scintillating displays of fireworks that take place all over the country – read on for our guide on where and when the Eid fireworks will be taking place this year.
Free meets spectacular at the dazzling Eid fireworks display Yas Island Abu Dhabi puts on every year. Drop by the tourist paradise every night of Eid al-Fitr from 9:00 p.m. to see a show of sparklers that you’ll remember until the next year’s Eid extravaganza.
