The summer festival will run until September 4.

A spectacular light and projection show at the Burj Khalifa marked the opening of the Dubai Summer Surprises (DSS). The festival returns for its 24th edition and offers residents and visitors alike a summer of retail celebrations, promotions, family fun, dining fest, entertainment, and more across the city.

Taking place from July 1 to September 4, the DSS celebrates everything that makes Dubai the number one summer vacation and shopping choice — a family-friendly destination, and a retail hotspot for visitors and residents.
