“The Mother of the Nation Festival celebrates, commemorates and honours the inspirational values of Her Highness Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak.”
The whole festival runs from March 26 – April 4, 2017.
It is along Corniche Road. It will cost you around 20 AED if you take a taxi from the Abu Dhabi bus station.
Ticket price is 20 AED.
The festival has 4 entrances and 6 different zones:
There so many activities you can do. Mostly for kids, though.
Kids can enjoy zipline, sand box, outdoor painting, big-floating balloons, and more.
There are loads of food carts and souvenir stalls.
Visitors can enjoy teepees, hammocks and a bicycle that can light up a tree.
There are 2 giant board games!!!! Which I think is really cool!
They have jugglers and a sand artist.
Who wouldn’t enjoy dinner by the beach?
They also have “Chef Challenge” where 2 chefs will compete and the audience will be the judge.
And the most unique things are the fireworks display that can be controlled by kids’ hand gestures, colorful containers and a guy that plays music using tubes and slippers.
If you can find time today until Tuesday, please make sure you pay it a visit. You and your kids will love it!
The festival is open from 4PM to 12MN.
