With news that Eid Al Adha will start on September 1, the skies of the UAE are set to light up in celebration. Here is a round-up of where you can best watch the show.

Abu Dhabi

Yas Marina

The show will begin at 9pm on the first day of Eid, and the best place to see it will be on the Yas Marina promenade. Restaurants along the promenade are expected fill up quickly, so make your bookings fast.

Dubai

The Beach, JBR

The Beach at JBR is planning a four-day firework extravaganza, beginning on the first day of Eid. This starts at 8.45pm, but it is a good idea to get there quite a bit earlier to grab a spot as it is likely to get very crowded.

Dubai Festival City

Dubai Festival City will be celebrating with a free fireworks show on the first day of Eid. The show, which is choreographed to music, will take place at 6pm and 9pm. Once again, get there early because this will be crowded.

Sharjah

Al Qasba’s display is set for 10pm. There are plenty of family-related activities and cultural attractions to fill time before the show.
