More about UAE National Day
Schools in the UAE celebrate National Day by holding national events and celebrations where kids will dress up in the Cultural "thoub and "kandoora" and perform the "youlah" and folkloric dances and organize cultural contests. In Abu Dhabi, the country's capital, celebrations are held in the city's corniche in which people arrive in decorated cars marking the history of the nation. Shops are also selling house decorations such as flags, to help show the people's spirit across the country. They also usually have a flag hoisting.
