Yas Island celebrates the festive season with the Yas Winterland Festival
Yas Island, the UAE’s premier entertainment destination, is set to host the first ever ‘Yas Winterland Festival’ for an entire month, which would include family-friendly events, activities and offers to celebrate the festive season. For the inaugural edition of the festival, many activities would take place like Yas Marina’s ‘Let It Snow’ celebrations, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi’s ‘Winterfest,’ Yas Mall’s Festive Season, du Forum’s ‘Winterland Carnival,’ and a midnight fireworks show to ring in the New Year.
Additionally, Coldplay’s New Year’s Eve live show ‘A Head Full of Dreams’ would draw a close the winter festivities on Yas Island.
The island is being completely transformed into a winter wonderland as several Yas Island attractions get set to offer winter-themed activities, events and special offers, from December 9, 2016, to January 7, 2017.
“Yas Island is all about exciting experiences. The month-long Yas Winterland Festival captures the best of what Yas Island has to offer in terms of events, entertainment and leisure, with a fun winter theme. Our visitors will be able to create ever-lasting memories as they celebrate the cheery, festive winter season among their loved ones, friends and family,” said Mohamed Abdulla Al Zaabi, CEO of Miral.
Commenting on the addition of the Yas Winterland Festival to Abu Dhabi’s vibrant events programme, His Excellency Saif Saeed Ghobash, Director General of Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority said, “A partnership approach to events development and delivery is expected to stimulate upward momentum in hotel bookings from domestic tourists and those from our key overseas markets who have the propensity to travel. Abu Dhabi is a leading family leisure destination full of captivating experiences, and the addition of these festive offers and activities across Yas Island provides even more compelling reasons for visitors to enjoy the emirate’s year-round appeal.”
