Be there when the skies light up with three hourly light shows from 6:30pm to 10:00pm on 1, 2 and 3 December in addition to a fireworks spectacle at 8.30pm on 2 December

Themed dancing, henna and falconry as well as live streaming of celebrations in Hatta will all be available at Ain Dubai 

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 28 November 2021 –While the UAE’s golden jubilee celebrations are set to fill the city’s every corner with joyful moments over the four-day long weekend, Ain Dubai by Dubai Holding, the emirate’s newest world-class landmark located on Bluewaters, is also commemorating the nation’s historic day.

Upon arrival, staff clad in beautiful, themed attire will welcome you to Ain Dubai, where the best of UAE National Day activities awaits. Don’t miss out on the very special official Hatta celebration, broadcast live on the big screens for you to enjoy as you explore the outdoors and make your way indoors for a variety of entertainment options.

Sing along to the tunes of Emirati music playing across the venue, with picks specially curated for the day. You can also enjoy the music of the Al Ayyala performers, an embodiment of Emirati values and heritage. Perhaps the most well-known traditional dance in the UAE, the Al Ayyala dance sees male performers holding thin bamboo canes and moving to a steady rhythm of drums.

Looking for a bit of relaxation and Emirati hospitality? Head to the retail area for an indoors majlis setup, featuring Arabian décor, traditional dress, and Arabic coffee. What’s more, ladies can head to the henna station to get their hands decorated with the plant-based dye in visually stunning designs, a practice heavily steeped in Emirati culture for ceremonial and special occasions.

If you fancy exploring the age-old desert tradition of falconry, the retail area will host an exclusive experience which will take you back to the past, when desert nomads woke at dawn to hunt with their birds before the sun rose high. Today, this noble tradition, and these majestic birds, live on in UAE culture. Professional photographers will be on hand to capture the most magical moments!

Ain Dubai outlets will also be serving up some of the most delicious food and beverage options, with plenty of red, black, white, and green-coloured treats. You can grab a few themed bites, too, plus coffee courtesy of Coffee Planet! Munch on local favourites as you wait for the sun to set—and prepare for the skies to light up with three hourly light shows from 6:30pm to 10pm throughout the weekend, and a three-minute fireworks spectacle at 8.30pm on 2nd December.

Furthermore, all guests purchasing a standard views experience for December 1, 2 and 3 will receive an AED 50 voucher towards their next ride to use from January 2 to March 31, 2022.

Experiences on offer at Ain Dubai over National Day weekend include a standard views experience, offering an unrivalled, 360-degree panorama of the city. Ain Dubai’s yacht experience, which takes place at 8:00pm at the Bluewaters Boat Dock, allows guests to sail the Dubai Marina for one and a half hours to take in the views at land level, before soaking up the sights from 250m in the sky.
