Enjoy delicious dishes at 15 waterfront restaurants at Dubai Festival City Mall overlooking the spectacular fireworks lighting up the night sky tonight. Displays will be taking place at 8pm and 10pm.

World view

Bust a move with the traditional Ayyala performances and Tanoura dancers, watch a BMX bike rider perform some jaw-dropping stunts or learn ancient Arabic tales as told by the Hakawati storyteller, taking place until August 13 from 11am to 11pm at IMG Worlds of Adventure.

Cine magic

Bollywood's Jabariya Jodi, starring Sidharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra, pulls us in many directions. Some fabulous dialogue will keep you chuckling, but it does last a rather long time. It's on across the UAE now. We give it two out of five stars.
Sharjah activities
