Three major exhibitions across three emirates in just one fortnight and thousands of visitors - that's how big an audience the UAE's favourite fruit got just last month.
Our first stop was at the Capital's Liwa Dates Festival 2019 that opened its doors on July 17 for 11 days for the 15th year, before we ended up 220km up north in Al Dhaid City for the eponymous four-day dates festival - our second stop - that kicked off on July 24. By the time we wrapped up our epic dates journey the next day at the Liwa Ajman Dates Festival - which opened on July 25 for four days - we realised we had already gathered a whole photo compilation of the UAE's best dates.
But it wasn't all about just capturing the choicest of the palm family's sweet fruits on display, it was also about the emotions, the places, and the people behind them. Here are some snapshots from our special collection.
