The Heart of Sharjah, one of the region's largest heritage and tourist projects being developed by Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq), hosted a line-up of events and activities in celebration of the 42nd UAE National Day.

A music parade moved along Sharjah Corniche in participation of senior government officials and directors as well as a huge crowd. The parade started from the area opposite Sharjah Museum of Islamic Civilisation and made its way to the activities area in the Heart of Sharjah, where crowds enjoyed a series of live musical performances, took part in walking parades and watched a procession of riders on horseback accompanied by groups of children from different institutions, including schools and clubs.

The National Day celebrations were held on the 1st and 2nd of December and featured family friendly activities and events, including a children's corner, a traditional store, a photograph booth, where visitors took pictures with traditional dress, and a henna corner, where women and girls had their hands decorated with henna. Other activities included folklore bands, Emirati traditional food, a UAE traditional dress contest and many contests with cash prizes. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
