The fall breeze has calmed the summer sizzle and it’s finally nice out for a walk. We patiently wait every year for this time of the year, where there’s just the right amount of sun, Dubai wakes up and the best events of the year are lined up on a candy menu.
Here’s a list of things to do in the UAE this weekend, folks [you won’t be disappointed]:
1. The Red Bull Open Water Party
The first of its kind, Red Bull is bringing Hollaphonic to the shores of Dubai for a breezy evening of dancing and drinks. With yachts, colourful inflatables and some of Barasti’s best DJs, this will be the way to blow off some steam after a hard week’s work.

Where: Barasti Beach, Mina Seyahi [Google Map here]
