Dubai Water Bash Day’ – Eid Al Adha Celebrations – Saturday, 27th October 2012

The launch of the first ever ‘Dubai Water Bash Day’ is set to take place October 27 at Zabeel Park as part of DEPE’s ‘Eid in Dubai – Eid Al Adha’ celebrations, which have been extended this year and are packed with festivities and celebrations. The full day of fun-filled water activities for the whole family includes the region’s first ever ‘Water Balloon Bash’ which is expected to draw up to 10,000 Dubai residents and visitors.

Each participating Water Balloon Basher will pick a side – yellow or blue – and will be given a T-shirt in team colours plus water-filled balloons to bash friends, family members or colleagues in a friendly and joyful water fight. Over three short and water-logged minutes, starting at 2.30pm, as many as 200,000 water balloons will be thrown by those taking part.

The specially cordoned off bash area within Zabeel Park, accessed through Gate 1, includes zones for the teams, plus a dedicated ladies only section. Other fun activities on the day will include exciting water-based games, a fun fair area, horse riding area, food area and a stage that will host several musical shows throughout the day adding more carnival feeling to the event.
