Mercato, the popular mall at the heart of Jumeirah Beach Road, is hosting it's 16th edition of Dubai Summer Surprises. Today, we watched "City of Friends" a 30 minutes live show for children. Featuring a live host and three costumed characters: Max, the only monkey in the world who works in the police service and the mischief maker in the community; Elphie, a bubbly and adventure-loving elephant whose impressive trunk and water-shooting abilities make her a natural fire-fighter; and Ted, a very caring teddy bear who has recently qualified as a paramedic and started work at the ambulance service lending a paw to those in need. Together they focus on all aspects of emergency services and teach safety to kids.
There is something going on everyday until the 7th of July... Check out the full program, www.facebook.com.
