Al Maryah Island's spectacular Christmas tree lights switch-on plans announced

The Galleria on Al Maryah Island will be transformed into a winter wonderland this Christmas.

And the festive fun kicks off with an awesome tree-lighting ceremony on December 13, which is open for everyone to attend.

From December 13 to 26, the island’s waterfront promenade and The Galleria will be full of Christmas cheer, with festive holiday décor, fun family friendly activities, holiday shopping and themed dining options.

Cosy winter cottages, sliding slope park, snow zone and an immersive snow globe are also on show to keep visitors entertained for hours.

While the youngest visitors can also enjoy train rides around the promenade – and even a trip to Santa’s Grotto to see the big man himself.

For the past week, Abu Dhabi residents have been enjoying a number of tree-lighting events across the capital, which are always a favourite at this time of year.

And you can add another to your list as Al Maryah Island lights up on December 13 from 6pm onwards.
