Dubai Hills Weekend is marking its season finale this Friday, April 13. Under the theme, ‘Spring is in the Air’, the outdoor event will host an array of family-friendly activities in Dubai Hills Estate, the master-planned green oasis by Emaar.   

In its first season, Dubai Hills Weekend has welcomed thousands of guests, with families regaling in the colourful and eclectic calendar of activities. The delightful outdoor event will return later this year to entertain visitors.

Among the activities that await visitors this weekend are delectable food options including soft and selected beverages, outdoor cinema, a petting zoo, oversized inflatable props, spring-themed decorative items, live DJ and more from 2pm to 10pm.

Children can learn about the art and science of gardening and preparing flower pots at a special workshop, while several arts and crafts events celebrate spring with children taking part in making ‘birds of hope’, flower bands and baskets.

Reflecting the theme, the face painting session will feature flowers in addition to the opportunity for the little ones to experience the joy of bird watching and butterfly spotting by going about in hats and magnifying glasses, and winning an explorer star upon finishing the journey.

A ‘unicorn’ dressed in pastel ribbons and birds and a dedicated petting zone will also be highlighted with the goal of promoting interaction and kindness towards animals. Children can also make flower chopped candies and decorate cookies wearing chef’s hats. For the art enthusiasts, there is an art lab where they create miniature canvases. Two outdoor screenings of everyone’s favourite films – Smurfs: The Lost Village & Kung Fu Panda 2– will add to the joy of the visitors, courtesy of Reel Cinemas.

Dubai Hills Estate is one of the largest master-planned destinations by Emaar, in the city which will feature an 18-hole championship golf course, the Dubai Hills Mall as well as vast stretches of landscaped parks including Dubai Hills Park, gardens, winding walkways, and extensive open areas.

Defining the value proposition of ‘where life is extraordinary,’ Dubai Hills Estate, which is equivalent to the size of about 1,550 football pitches, is part of Mohammed bin Rashid City (MBR City), and centrally located between Downtown Dubai on the north and Arabian Ranches in the south.
