Dubai Summer Surprises (DSS) is the highlight of the city’s summer calendar.
Dubai Summer Surprises (DSS) was launched in 1998 to position Dubai as an international summer destination. The festival is one of the highlights of the city’s summer calendar with GCC residents and other tourists flocking to the city, looking for bargains in over 6,000 stores that are participating in this annual event.
This festival is also heavily geared towards families with each mall undertaking a programme of events for children of all ages. In addition to the shopping bonanza, a part of Dubai Summer Surprises has nothing to do with shopping and everything to do with fun! Modhesh World features the festival mascot, the smiling yellow character named Modhesh.
This huge entertainment space is divided into different themed zones. Toddlers, kids, and teenagers will all find plenty to do and discover here - from playgrounds and soft toy areas to the latest video games and a 4D cinema. Modhesh World is a child's dream come true.
Timings for events around the city during Dubai Summer Surprises are:
Saturday to Wednesday - 10:00am to 10:00pm.
Thursday - 10:00am to 12:00am.
