Shopping Festival Opening Ceremonies

A great view of one of the bridges from Dubai Creek Park.

Dubai has this big shopping festival every year. It starts at the begining of January and goes on for a while (a month or two?). To celebrate the begining of the shopping festival there was a huge carnival and parade at the Dubai Creek Park. A couple of us headed there to check it out. Here's what we found:

Clown car in the parade.
Little paddle boats for kids and a blow up Burj Al Arab in the background.

Unicycling clowns from the crazy clown parade. It was really like a whole school of clowns.

Fireworks at the opening celebrations of the Dubai Shopping Festival.

At the end of the fireworks we headed back to Dubai Festival City Mall. We played a round of bowling, stopped by the grocery store, and then decided to call it a night. 
Overall, great day.

Jimmy with the A-plus follow through. (Like Fred Flinstone himself). I'm no bowler but tonight I must have been really lucky because check out the scores!!
