Last December 2, I was able to witness the highlight of UAE's 41st National Day celebration at Downtown Dubai. People of different races lined up in the side walk of Emaar Boulevard to see an hour-long spectacular parade, participated by locals and expatriates. Good thing, the weather was great, no rain showers (which is likely to happen these days since winter season is about to start). It was a perfect, sunny day to celebrate the unity of a nation.
Here are some parade snapshots:
* luxury cars with eye-catching designs *
* Giant Balloons *
* UAE Nationals *
* The Expats *
(The Filipino Community in the photo below)
* parade floats *
* men in stilts, with UAE flag colors in their costume *
It was a fantastic parade, a very successful National Day celebration hosted by Emaar!
Speaking of events, there's more to come this Holiday Season. I'm looking forward to the Christmas specials at the malls, the New Year's Eve countdown at Burj Khalifa and the annual festive parades during DSF (Dubai Shopping Festival).
