As we get closer to the Eid al-Adha holidays (and we’ve got loads of different plans for you to check out, by the way), more details of fireworks shows are announced – in fact there are three days of fireworks in Yas Marina to visit.

Well we’ve got one more that’s come to light, as it were, with one theme park in Dubai announcing a huge light show that’s based on a miniature-scale replica of the city’s iconic skyline.

With the Burj Khalifa sat at the middle of the piece, Legoland Dubai at Dubai Parks & Resorts will be going big with an 8-minute (eight!) that will see the Lego replicas of the city’s famous towers light up in a brilliant demonstration every evening between Thursday August 8 and Friday 16. Taking place at 7.45pm, the show will continue to run on Thursdays and Fridays after the Eid al-Adha holiday has finished.

More than 15,000 Lego models will be used in the model city demonstration, which will both light up and be lit up by huge light beams, and it’s made using 439,000 Lego bricks.

And, for visiting (it’s Dhs245 for one park and Dhs345 for both Legoland Dubai and Legoland Waterpark, which can be swapped in for an unlimited Summer Play Pass valid until Saturday September 14), you’ll get a celebratory Eid al-Adha-themed Lego brick to take with you as a keepsake.

How about that for a spectacular show?
