October 29, 2019 | By RetailME Bureau

Global Village, the region’s multicultural festival park, opened its door for the 24th edition in Dubai on October 29.

Millions of guests are invited to “Create a World of Everlasting Memories” during the 159-day extravaganza, which runs until April 4, 2020. Global Village will present over 40,000 live shows, unique shopping experiences across 3,500 outlets, over 100 rides, skill games, arcade games and attractions at Carnaval as well as mouth-watering cuisine from several corners of the globe.

“At Global Village, we’ve been working tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure Season 24 offers our millions of guests an entertaining ride with breathtaking shows and stunning new features,” said Global Village CEO, Bader Anwahi. “The many seasonal firsts, coupled with the adventures and thrills our guests know and love, will truly make Season 24 one to remember for both our international visitors and the country’s residents and citizens.”

Global Village will come to life in Season 24 with an unforgettable variety of authentic international offerings alongside new facades and attractions that represent culture, art, heritage, crafts, food and family-centric entertainment from across the world.

Global Village guests will also be able to experience unique cultures from 78 countries through themed pavilions from destinations including the UAE, Saudi Arabia, India, Pakistan, Europe, Americas, Bosnia & the Balkans, Thailand, Bahrain & Kuwait, Lebanon, Palestine & Jordan, Afghanistan, Syria, Japan, the Philippines & Vietnam, China, Africa, Egypt, Morocco, Turkey, Iran and Yemen. This season, Korea and Azerbaijan join the Global Village family with new pavilions. This brings the total number of pavilions to 26 this season, each housing their own unique cultural experiences.

New and healthy additions for foodies include the Indian Chaat Bazaar and an array of brand-new street food offerings. Global Village has also added a number of new features that will take centre stage such as the Arabian Square – a dancing fountain experience that brings together a water and light spectacle with live music.

Other new additions include two new Canal Bridges – the Hungarian Széchenyi Chain Bridge and the famous Tower Bridge of London, which will host the Tower Troupe aerial acrobatics show. Other enhancements to look out for are an enriched Arabic-themed Canal Boat Kiosk, a new look and feel for Celebration Walk and the new Global Village entrance archways from Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed road from both Sharjah and Abu Dhabi directions.
