DUBAI: Friday was a holiday for everyone at the Dubai Shopping Festival. To benefit the most from the month-long festival, scores of families gathered at one of the DSF event sites at Dubai Outlet Mall to take part in the festival of colours and fun: the kite festival.
The 3rd edition of the Dubai Outlet Mall’s Kite Fiesta was held with loads of activities for kids and general crowd as the outdoor venue got even more exciting when the international kite teams started their performance, flying gigantic and imaginatively themed kites in different shapes and colours.
The highlight of this event was the enormous animal themed and colourful kite exhibition showcasing unique handmade kites from different countries around the world dotting Dubai’s sky with vivid and bright creations.
Vishal Mahajan, the director of Dubai Outlet Mall, said: “We are glad to have held another exciting family event here at Dubai Outlet Mall.
