The festive season is so brilliant in Abu Dhabi that we don’t want it to end yet and thanks to FLASH Entertainment and Yas Island, it doesn’t have to.
From December 27, du Forum will be transformed into an enchanting wonderland for the second annual Winterland Carnival – there will even be snowflakes falling from the sky.
The free event, which runs until December 31 is filled with fun activities for the whole family. There’s a rollercoaster, a carousel and bumper cars as well as a two-lane snow tubing ramp and snowball zone.
A seasonal market will offer delicious treats from local food trucks and the chance to spend any Christmas cash with local and designer outlets.
The event will peak with a spectacular fireworks display at the stroke of midnight, marking the start of 2018.
Over at du Arena, fans will see ‘Fireworks’ of their own as legendary pop star Katy Perry will be singing out the old year and welcoming in new vibes for 2018. With thrilling singles Roar, Chained to the Rhythm and Dark Horse, Perry is sure to put on a show to remember and is known around the world for her spectacular live performances.
For more festive magic, everyone who has a ticket to Katy Perry's New Year's Eve concert can get bronze admission to Ferrari World Abu Dhabi for just Dhs100. The offer can be availed by presenting the concert ticket and Emirates ID. Each concert-goer is eligible for one ticket to Ferrari World.
