The competition, which takes place on June 29 at 3pm, will feature 12 teams from UAE colleges, universities and clubs, as well as entrants from radio competitions and Facebook fans. Each four-member team will participate in various elimination challenges ranging from throwing pearls into a bucket to paddling a two-man tube across a set route.

Mass pillow fight tonight

Anyone wanting to harmlessly bash out some aggression should attend a mass pillow fight at Dubai Mall Wednesday afternoon.

"Please join us as you witness the new definition of a smashing good time," said a spokesman for the event. Part of Dubai Summer Surprises, the pillow fight will be Wednesday at 5pm at the Dubai Ice Rink.

The 16th Dubai Summer Surprises runs until July 7 and includes dozens of shows and activities, all fronted by the cheerful, yellow mascot Modhesh.
