The UAE National Day long weekend was 48 hours of FULL-ON PARTAAY!
Monday, officially marked the 48th UAE National Day celebrations and its safe to say that the country spared no expense in going all out to show just how significant the day is to all its people.
The UAE transformed into a two-day-long rave party for ALL its residents and visitors. Every car, resto, hotel, beach, school, club, mall, name it – donned the UAE flag with pride and got all decked up to set the stage for a massive national day celebration.
Apart from the fireworks… and more fireworks, famjams and friends raced off to the wadis, deserts and mountain tops to enjoy a city free escape and to spend some quality time with their squad (and to can around some foam on unsuspecting civilians bahahaha).
Now let’s take a sneak peek into how the UAE peeps celebrated their National Day this 2019.
OFCC! What’s a UAE National Day celebration without a horizon full of LAVISH fireworks?!
And also people floating around on their LED litt water jetski packs looking like a bunch of mini Iron Man’s on the loose.
Residents enjoyed the FAABB display of the Burj Khalifa completely immersed in the colours of the UAE flag
Along with patriotic background music to compliment the mood down at Downtown, Dubai.
Shoppers also got in on the fun and tradish national day celebrations
The one day a year that expats go all out to be a part of the local traditions and join in the culture by donning on the UAE’s national dress, the Kandura and Abaya
Then click away (touristy) pics at the Majlis setups around the country… well, it is the UAE national day… so how can you not?!
National Day holiday? Cue the long drives and squad pics
….And some more fireworks
Residents enjoyed a massive display of fireworks in multiple locations across ALL THE SEVEN EMIRATES. Talk about go big… or go home.
The FOAM! How could you NOT celebrate without the FOAM?!
Some residents stuck to old-time traditions and canned up foam on each other, celebrating the national day the way it’s supposed to be celebrated
Long drives, all-nighters by the beach, camping out till dawn, cray parties underneath the Burj #HowToLiveYourBestLife101
Catching a glimpse of the unmissable air show is just a national day ritual at this point
Some were even lucky enough to catch the fun-filled Emirati dances as well this long weekend
So this was the 48th UAE National Day 2019 celebrations in a nutshell!!
So if you were just Netflix and Chillin’ at home (like most of us anti-social sapiens)… then this was a sum-up of all that happened around the UAE. Yo’ welcs.
