The Emirates Mall was suddenly awakened by the sounds of drums and whistles, and there was some sort of celebration going on. People were seen magnetized by the commotion on the ground floor. There it was: a group of people parading around the mall in bright colourful costumes, the men playing the drums and the girls dancing to the beat. Why was there a parade in a mall, I really did not know but the crowd looked excited with the free entertainment.
And the group just paraded round and round the shopping complex three times (I counted just by listening to the approaching and disappearing noise) before I left the place.
