4 places to enjoy fireworks during Eid Al Adha 2024

It’s almost Eid Al Adha! If you’re celebrating Eid Al Adha in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), what better way to enjoy it than watching fireworks?

Eid Al Adha 2024 starts from June 16 (Sun) until June 18 (Tue), but if you add June 15 (Sat) to this holiday, you get four days off, presuming that your days off include weekends.

But don’t worry! Some places in the UAE offer fireworks displays beyond the Eid Al Adha holidays, so even if your days off fall on other dates, you can still have the chance to witness the sky light up at night.

Below is a list of places in the UAE where you can watch the fireworks shows:

Riverland Dubai (June 16 & 17)

You can enjoy fireworks for two days on June 16 and 17 in Riverland Dubai, which is one of the largest theme parks in the Middle East.

Aside from the fireworks display, you and your loved ones can also watch a cool laser show in the evenings, specifically at 7:30 PM, 8:20 PM, and 9:30 PM.

The place is also surrounded by street food markets, various performances and dance shows, and of course, their theme parks.

Abu Dhabi Corniche (June 17)

Abu Dhabi Corniche is putting on a fireworks show on June 17, 9 PM. There are various restaurants around Corniche where overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) can have a grand view of the light spectacle along the water for the best view.

Al Dhafra (June 17)

If you’re near Al Dhafra, you have three options on where to watch fireworks: Al Marfa, Madinat Zayed, and the public park. All these locations will be taking place simultaneously at 9 PM.

Hazza bin Zayed Stadium, Al Ain (June 17)

Meanwhile, if you are in Al Ain, you can enjoy a five-minute fireworks show at 9 PM on June 17. The place is surrounded by food and beverages stalls, so you can have plenty of time to enjoy delicious snacks before the show starts.

Some of these places are in different emirates, but if you and your friends are planning to go on a road trip, then these are the fireworks spots worth looking into. So, plan your days off ahead, and happy celebrating Eid Al Adha!
