Min Bladi Al Emarat, a Dubai Summer Surprises (DSS) 2012 signature event showcasing the tradition and culture of UAE, kicked off on Thursday at the Star Atrium at Dubai Mall.

The event offers visitors a glimpse of Emirati culture and lifestyle from the past. The public exhibition includes a heritage oasis, traditional craftsmen, a hospitality tent, and a traditional show. It is open to the public from 10am to 10pm, with traditional activities beginning daily at 4pm.

Visitors are encouraged to participate in the Emirati heritage competitions featuring traditional foods and perfume. This is the main highlight of the year's event.

A number of the popular attractions at the Min Bladi Al Emarat include musical and dance performances of the traditional Ayallah band, henna tattoo station and photo opportunities with a falcon.

Omair Ebrahim Saleh, a UAE national who has been a student volunteer at Min Bladi Al Emarat since 2001, said he believe this event is an effective platform to promote exchange of culture. It instils a sense of identity among the young generations.

Min Bladi Al Emarat will run until June 23. – Gulf News
