On this occasion, the ‘Bab Al Shams Arena’ adjacent to Bab Al Shams Desert Resort & Spa, will transform into a festival ground for the day. There is something for all ages at this festival: fun, games, activities, an obstacle course, a roller rink, strength tests, arts and crafts and sporting competitions. Along with the activities the festival has a variety of unlimited food and beverage buffets, a not to be missed food truck styled food court, live music and entertainment. This is set to be a day for the family to have fun, for the fit to challenge them and for friends to enjoy a show unlike any other.
Besides enjoying the carnival games and family fun activities, the audience will be able to witness the International Strongman athletes with mind-numbing strength perform feats of incredible power. The maiden International Strongman event will test the participating athletes across a number of disciplines: lifting logs, pulling objects like trucks and cars that a normal human can’t even imagine moving and competing to prove their global supremacy in strength, speed and conditioning. The event promises to have humanity's strongest gathering to compete for their chance at the glory, the richest prize purse in Strongman history and the coveted title of the World's Ultimate Strongman™ for one year.
And flying in from China to perform a special show alongside the world's strongest men are some of the world's best martial artists, the Shaolin Monks.
The promoters are leaving no stones unturned to make this event a fun-filled day extravaganza. Commenting on the event, Don Idrees and Mark Boyd, creators of World’s Ultimate Strongman™ said, “Fusing a unique sport with entertainment and festivities in the wonderful city of Dubai with all its culture and panache, we are going to deliver a show like never before and an unforgettable visitor and spectator experience!”
