UAE National Day

UAE nationals both young (right) and old celebrated UAE National Day at Jebel Hafeet.
Dubai/Abu Dhabi: Car rallies, firework displays, charity drives and a marine parade were among dozens of activities held across the UAE Wednesday as thousands of people came out to celebrate the country's 38th National Day.
All seven emirates were awash with colours as a festive atmosphere swept the nation. Motorists jostled for attention with flamboyantly decorated vehicles and UAE flags fluttered around every corner in the early December breeze.
A flotilla of vessels made its way down Dubai Creek in a parade attended by Shaikh Majid Bin Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Chairman of Dubai Culture. Civil defence boats led the way with an impressive show as they gave the crowd on either side of the creek a water cannon display to rival that of the Burj Dubai fountain.


Fireworks display held as part of the National Day celebration at Emirates Palace, Abu Dhabi. Emiratis and expatriates came together to celebrate the 38th National Day with a range of activities in the UAE.
