Is it just me or did March fly by? But don’t be sad that it disappeared with a blink of an eye, instead embrace the last couple of days and say hello to a fresh new month. And boy does the UAE have loads of fun events lined up on this weekend’s calendar. Here’s our pick of the best to get involved in.
