Global Village in Dubai has announced a host of activities for the coming week as part of the 49th UAE National Day celebrations. With a festive atmosphere in celebration of the spirit of the union, and emblematic art installations across Global Village, the popular tourist destination will celebrate the country’s diversity.

The five-day weekend begins on November 30 with Commemoration Day to recognise the sacrifice of Emirati martyrs who gave their lives for the nation in civil, military and humanitarian service. Global Village will observe this solemn day without music or entertainment, with usual mainstays resuming on Tuesday, December 1.

Art installations have been designed to celebrate the unity of the emirates as well as the remarkable cultural diversity of this great country:

– A perspective photo opportunity in the colours of the UAE flag will occupy the open space near Kiosks Street,

– Celebration Walk will host seven brightly coloured pillars of rocks featuring the UAE flag. Each pillar is made up of massive rocks with the tallest reaching 5 meters in height.
