Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq) has announced a fireworks show at Al Majaz Waterfront on the first day of Eid Al Adha. Visitors can expect three minutes of pyrotechnics at 8 PM, overlooking Khalid Lagoon.
This year, the soaring temperatures have resulted in several venues cancelling their pyrotechnic plans. This includes The Pointe by Nakheel, and all the operators on Bluewaters Island and Al Seef in Dubai. The Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment, which organises the Dubai Summer Surprises sale, has also announced it will not host any fireworks for Eid Al Adha this year.
