Al Ain: Visitors to Al Ain Zoo will be able to enjoy action-packed entertainment during Eid Al Adha holidays starting from Friday, 26 October to Sunday, 28 October, with children under the age of 12 entering the zoo free of charge when accompanied by an adult. The zoo will be open with extended hours over the holiday weekend, from 10am to 10pm.
The entertainment programme will pay homage to the diverse cultures that the zoo’s animals hail from, commencing with an African dance, followed by a group of Indian dances, the traditional Dabka and ending with a performance of the UAE’s national Harbiya. An exciting fire dance performance will also take place every hour from 7:30pm onwards each day.
The zoo will also host eagle and falcon presentations, bird and parrot shows, photo opportunities with parrots, Ahlan services, and more, in addition to the opportunity to witness the beautiful and diverse collection of animals growing increasingly energetic as the weather cools.
Animal lovers can also continue enjoying the zoo’s year-round attractions: the Elezba children’s farm which allows children to get up-close with their favorite animals; and the Giraffe Feeding, which offers a uniquely interactive wildlife experience.
