Abu Dhabi, UAE. Mother of the Nation Festivals
The great weather before it turns to nasty hot so it is timely to finally have this festival just finished a couple of weeks ago and how I wish we have visited twice as we didn’t see it all in just one late afternoon to late night. Some are tourists from another GCC Country. Some are locals and expats like us and their visitors.
So many events going on from January to April but I only managed to come to a few and enjoy them. It seems life is becoming busy for me since I have accepted that I will be here for quite some time to support my wonderful hubby and son.
Here are some photos. I hope you will enjoy viewing them too but the thrill and excitement were to be there in person. Anyway… see U again next year!
Lots of activities for the children for all ages and some of them are free. Of course, you just have to go on the queue and be patient! We went to see a documentary about water in UAE and it was a mini Museum and beautifully presented to people. My son loves doing his own kite and there are some markets (souq), music/concerts, and lots of restaurants around the Corniche where they built this event. Last year we went to see a magic show & acrobatics and a Comedy stint but we were late on a schedule this year so we missed it and walking back to the next zone was too far away! Still, we enjoyed and my son was happy that’s more important than the one we have missed.
