Eid Al Adha 2018 Fireworks in UAE

Join in the Eid Al Adha 2018 celebrations across the UAE with these amazing firework shows!

Eid Al Adha, also known as the ‘Festival of Sacrifice’ is the second of two Islamic holidays celebrated by Muslims worldwide every year.

This second Islamic celebration occurs around 70 days following the final day of the Holy Month of Ramadan, and Eid Al Adha is considered the most holiest of the two Eid holidays.

As Eid Al Adha 2018 is a public holiday, both sectors have been granted days off work to enjoy their holiday festivities with family and friends.

Part of these celebrations every year are dazzling fireworks displays that light up the skies of the UAE. Every year, various venues across the UAE host fireworks, concerns and more to mark the occasion of Eid Al Adha.
