The Dubai Events and Promotions Establishment (DEPE) has unveiled the main attractions of 'Eid in Dubai' to mark festivities coinciding with Eid Al Fitr. Starting from the first day of Eid, 'Eid in Dubai' will feature entertainment destinations, spectacular concerts, international character shows, fireworks, and shopping deals across the city.

Being organized for the third consecutive year, 'Eid in Dubai' aims at promoting Dubai as a festive destination during Eid-Al-Fitr and Eid-Al-Adha celebrations through various entertainment events to highlight Dubai's unique manner of celebrating this special occasion. It also aims at bringing together the diverse cultures and nationalities residing or visiting Dubai to celebrate this joyous occasion in three days of continuous festivities designed to cater to all ages.

Ibrahim Saleh, Coordinator General of 'Eid in Dubai', said, "'Eid in Dubai' has become a main event within Dubai's festivals especially after the success of the past two editions. It also affirms Dubai's position as a premier destination for festivals and events in the region all round the year."

"One of our main aims of organizing this festivity is to create a social event that brings together all cultures and nationalities to enjoy one great celebration. We have spared no effort in putting together a colorful and attractive calendar of local and international events that will be strategically distributed across the city so that everyone can participate and feel the festivity wherever they are in Dubai."

In a span of three days, visitors can ready to welcome two of the best -loved characters on to the stage: Ben 10 and Hello Kitty. Ben 10 features a twenty-five minute live stunt action show incorporating spectacular graphics and a chance for children to see Ben Tennyson, Four Arms, and Wildmutt in action. Hello Kitty, Dear Daniel, and My Melody get together for a musical performance in the Hello Kitty show. To emphasize the spirit of Eid and to spread the feelings of joy and festivity, both shows are being staged by the Dubai Events and Promotions Establishment for free.

To add to the festive spirit, popular dinosaur Barney joins Baby Bop and BJ for yet another scintillating show titled Barney's Beach Party. The show is free and followed by a 'meet and greet' session. Popular children's television programme Lazy Town also takes the stage to enthrall children.

Besides the characters shows, families can also look forward to a brilliant Aquafantasia show including fireworks, laser lighting, and water screens. A DINO LIVE Exhibition at Dubai Festival City takes visitors on a journey of dinosaurs through an exhibition, shows, character meet and greet, merchandising stands, and food stalls themed on dinosaurs and the Jurassic age.
