Fret not as you can enjoy the fun virtually. The show titled as “Seeds of the Nation“ will be broadcast across the country on TV and digitally.
“The COVID-19 pandemic required us to approach the official 49th UAE National Day celebrations in a new and ambitious way – one that uses digital visual technology to inspire an audience watching from home,” said Khalfan Al Mazrouei, Organising Committee of the Official 49th UAE National Day Celebration member.
“The overarching theme of the live show is one of hope and optimism. Embracing the country’s rich legacy and traditions, it looks ahead to a vivid future in which we remain true to our values.
“The narrative of the show artistically revolves around the growth and transformation of a seed into a shoot and then finally into full bloom, mirroring the journey the UAE has taken in the last 49 years.”
The entire show details have not been revealed yet but there is news that there will be a moving sculpture surrounded by the sea. It will light up with visuals that are themed around the nation’s history, values and founding fathers.
