Authorities in Sharjah have declared that most public parking spaces will be free from June 16 to 18 in celebration of the Eid Al Adha holidays. This exemption, however, does not extend to the seven-day paid parking zones, which are marked by blue signs, according to the Sharjah Municipality. This advisory follows closely after Dubai's announcement of its free parking hours and adjusted Metro and Tram schedules. For both the public and private sectors across the UAE, the Eid Al Adha holidays are scheduled from Saturday, June 15, through Tuesday, June 18. Public sector workers in Sharjah will benefit from a 5-day holiday due to their 4-day workweek, while those in other parts of the country will enjoy a 4.5-day break, with Friday being a half-day. Arafah Day, the most sacred day in Islam observed on Dhul Hijjah 9, is on June 15, and the three-day Eid Al Adha holiday (Dhul Hijjah 10 to 12) will officially span from June 16 to 18, making the total break four days.
