UAE is all set to celebrate the 51st National Day on December 2, and the seven emirates are organising concerts, family-friendly activities and fireworks mark the occasion. The streets are dotted with flags and lights heralding the day.

The Ras Al Khaimah Police General Command has announced to carry out the National Day parade on Thursday, December 1, from 8am to 11am on the Qawasim Corniche.
