Christmas 2019 in Abu Dhabi: Five days of fireworks coming to the Winter Carnival

It’s getting closer and closer to Christmas, in fact it’s only 50 days away (at the time of writing).

If you’re like us, you’lll already be getting excited, making a playlist and looking for where you can celebrate.

If you can’t wait until December 25 for a festive celebration then a free winter festival is coming to the city from December 11 to 15 to help get you in the mood ahead of Santa’s visit.

Yas Winter Carnival will take over Yas Gateway Park for five days of festive fun and will feature a winter market, a tree lighting ceremony, a snow zone where you can build your own snowman and singalongs to all the festive classics.

The best part? Fireworks, of course.

The night’s sky above Yas Island is set to light up every night at 9pm with a dazzling fireworks display.

The free event will also feature a gingerbread making station, travelling entertainers and magicians and more to keep you busy as you wait for the fireworks to start.

All we need now is to find the perfect cheesy Christmas jumper and to convince the rest of the office to let us play our festive playlist.

Wish us luck.

Free. Dec 11-16. 2pm-11pm. Yas Gateway Park, Yas Island
