Halloween in Dubai

Although Halloween is not really an integral part of the Middle Eastern culture, it is a very popular occasion here in Dubai. The city of Dubai as we all know, is a great melting pot of cultures with a large number of expats from around the globe making this their home. In Dubai, Halloween is celebrated by people of different religions and cultures. Here, it’s not about religion or belief, instead Halloween in Dubai is symbolic of Dubai’s multicultural identity. If you visit any of the popular expatriate communities in Dubai, like the Emirates Living, Arabian Ranches, Umm Suqeim, Jumeirah, Uptown Mirdiff or Green Community on a Halloween night, you’ll find a carnival like festivity on the streets.
