Held under the patronage of HH Sheikha Maitha bint Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the events will be held at the Nad Al Sheba race track. The fair is scheduled from 2:00pm-8:00pm and the walkathon will begin at 5:00pm.
HH Sheikha Maitha Bint Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum will participate in the walkathon alongside local celebrities, athletes and Dubai’s multicultural community, giving Dubai residents an opportunity to walk together with one motion towards the common goal of educating children in poverty-stricken countries around the world.
Families will have an opportunity to have fun together with the many exciting activities offered at the fair. Activities such as face-painting, henna tattoos, sand art and clay pot painting will be available for all. Also, inflatable games, bungee, rodeo, trampoline, Space Ball, Robo Surf, electric cars for kids and a shooting gallery will be part of the fair’s offering. And, finally, the fair will include pony, horse and camel rides as well as entertainers – jugglers, stilt walkers, skirt dancers, sky dancers and balloon twisters – who will be displaying their talents throughout the fair.
Registration stands are available in various locations including Mall of the Emirates and sports clubs, social clubs and special needs centers throughout Dubai. People can also register online at www.dubaicares.ae.
