A gateway to a world of surprises: DIFC ushers in festive season with exciting activities for visitors of all agesPress Release 16 Dec 2021 01:00 pm
Dubai, UAE, 16 December 2021: DIFC, a vibrant urban destination for culture and community, is unveiling a number of exciting activities and entertainment for its visitors during the festive season and throughout Dubai Shopping Festival 2022.
Kicking off the activations on December 16, DIFC will be mesmerising onlookers with a special display of moving search lights. As part of the grand opening, visitors will also get the chance to be part of the human claw machine where they will be lifted into the air on a crane-line device and dipped into a pot full of tempting prizes from Gate Avenue retailers every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from December 16 to 25 (10am-10pm).
Kids will have a special treat this season. When parents show a receipt of purchases from Gate Avenue worth AED 75, they will receive play money to use in a dedicated playland activation area to participate in activity stations such as slime making, t-shirt painting and table carnival games. The playland will be accessible every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from December 16 to 1 January, 2022 (12pm-8pm).
Celebrating the return of the city’s biggest shopping and entertainment extravaganza, Dubai Shopping Festival 2022, a plethora of entertainment options will take place at DIFC including a special art installation titled ‘City Gazing Dubai’ by Justus Bruns and Mingus Vogel, founders of Amsterdam-based design studio VOUW, will transport onlookers into the world of space. By showing an impression of the ‘footprint’ of light that we send into space, astronauts looking at earth will experience the ‘overview effect’ – a mental shift of awareness of how fragile life on earth is – which is what VOUW want people to feel when they look at the installation.
Other entertainment activations include dancers, weekend music shows, an acrobatic chair stack show, a pixel show and an LED juggler.
Over the next few weeks, DIFC will transform into an unforgettable destination for visitors to soak in the best of the UAE winter with family entertainment, activities and more.
