Dubai RTA celebrates the 52nd UAE National Day
Public transport in Dubai City also joins the celebrations
Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (Dubai RTA) celebrated the 52nd UAE National Day by organising commemorative events for staff at the external courtyard of the Dubai RTA headquarters on November 28, 2023.
The activation included Emirati heritage activities, such as pearl diving and the art of preparing Arabic coffee. Smart screens displaying quizzes about the UAE’s geographical and historical landmarks, an electronic games corner, a performance by a popular band, a display of traditional weapons, household items, folk costumes, and traditional occupations were all part of the festivities.
Emirati hospitality was highlighted, along with a special exhibit designed as a historical museum narrating the life story in the UAE before the various emirates joined up to form a sovereign nation.
