Nice Spectacle


The sky over the Global Village on Friday morning was dotted with balloons. As I approached Emirates Rd. from the road coming up from Mall of the Emirates it looked like little puffs of smoke were rising above the horizon. As I got closer I could see the balloon shapes against the rising sun. Does anyone know what the balloon show was all about?

Looks like a promotional campaign of some kind given the branding on the balloons

It's a balloon festival that's happening as part of DSF at the Global Village, Dec 20-30th.

See the program on the DSF website for more details.

CG: I wondered if that would happen!

I guarantee lots of accidents on SZR when the metro starts running alongside it!

Were there really any accidents or are you speculating. Actually, I took both shots while driving!
