Dubai Tourism announces Diwali 2020 celebrations


November 12, 2020 | By RetailME Bureau

Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment (DFRE) will be organising the Diwali festivities this year with firework displays, water fountains and rhythmic music, amongst other celebrations.

The fireworks display, which will be coupled with performances of light, sound and colours can be seen from Global Village and The Pointe at Palm Jumeirah on November 13th.

The events will begin at 9pm with fireworks illuminating Atlantis, The Palm hotel and all of The Pointe before the recently opened world’s largest dancing fountain, The Palm Fountain leaps into action.

The Palm Fountain’s two giant floating platforms, covering 14,000 sq ft, powerful water jets that shoot 105 metres into the air, and 3,000 LED lights will work in unison to create a magical and unforgettable show. Spectators who travel to The Pointe can enjoy 25 per cent off special Diwali menus available at selected venues on the night.

Celebrations at Global Village will include a huge carnival of performances, live shows, food vendors, hundreds of retail stalls and fireworks.

Also taking place at Global Village is the ‘Absolute Bollywood’ show which will feature 16 high energy dancers performing on Global Village’s main stage while the ‘Lights, Camera, Action… Bollywood!’ live show will take guests behind the scenes of Indian cinema’s biggest films.

Another of Dubai’s record-breaking light, laser, fire and fountain attractions will continue the Diwali-themed celebrations with a double-header of great performances by the IMAGINE show at Dubai Festival City, which will be held until November 21st.
