Here are some of the best events that you should not miss during the last week of the Dubai Summer Surprises

Kids Fashion Week

Tiny feet will march down the fashion ramps at Dubai Festival City Mall from July 1 to  6 for Kids Fashion Week – one of the main events of the Dubai Summer Surprises.

This mini fashion week will feature kidswear from the best global brands with the local catwalk stars of tomorrow, as well as a plethora of creativity and avant garde designs that will see the little flowers blossom and shine.

Child models will take the catwalk daily at 6:30pm and at  7:30pm. On July 6, three winners will be selected: Best Boy, Best Girl and the Best Interesting Personality.

Strawberry Shortcake

Mirdif City Centre will be transformed into a little girls’ paradise from July 1 to 7 as Strawberry Shortcake and her friends come to take up residence in the mall for eight days with their Dubai Summer Surprises show “The Berry Best Choice”. All little girls are invited to Berry Bitty City where the residents are making their way through the berry batch in search of the Wanderberry.

The show, with three daily stagings at 4:15pm, 5:30pm and 7:30pm, provides a wholesome and sweet-scented pink world where little girls have the power to solve big problems with humour, friendship and optimism.

Miracle Garden

Mercato will captivate its visitors once again on July 1 with the third and final staging of its popular Dubai Summer Surprises show, The Miracle Garden. With its mystical storyline, enchanting characters and superb choreography, in this unusual show the story teller interacts with his audience by narrating the tale of The Miracle Garden, a magical setting where beautiful flowers and lovely birds live together in harmony. Shows will be staged at 5pm, 6:30pmand  8pm.
