Civic chiefs are bracing for the extended holidays during Eid Al Fitr and UAE National Day and have put together a programme of music and entertainment in Dubai's parks. Mohammed Al Fardan, Head of the Promotion and Recreation Office at the Public Parks and Horticulture Department, said special programmes would be held to mark Eid from November 26 to 28, while events to commemorate National Day would be held from December 2 to 4.



Eid celebrations would be held at four main parks: the Creekside Park, including Children's City, Al Mamzar Park, Safa Park and Mushref Park.



A number of Arab, Gulf and Asian music troupes have been invited to take part and the UAE's military music band will also perform at the Creekside Park. At the same time, visitors will be able to enjoy horse and camel rides in the Creekside Park and fun rides can be arranged in rowing boats. A craft market will be the highlight of the activities at Safa Park, running from November 27 to December 18.



The market will include African artwork, wooden carvings, hand-made baskets, Indonesian decorations, Organza curtains, tablecloths, mosaic mirrors, African candles, handmade stationery, fresh water pearls, handmade soaps, silk paintings, embroidery, fabric picture frames and children's goods. Al Fardan said that Mushrif Park would host several activities, games and music performances, apart from the usual camel and horse rides. The Children's City will host several theatre productions and contests for children. Children can also enjoy the regular features of the city that offer information and entertainment at the same time. Fun workshops will be held in addition to the regular Planetarium shows.
