(MENAFN Press) Dubai Culture & Arts Authority (Dubai Culture), the Emirate's dedicated Authority for culture, arts, and heritage, has recorded robust response from residents and visitors to the UAE during the National Day activities at the Dubai Heritage & Touristic Season.

With back-to-back events for three days in a row, the National Day activities were designed to reflect the 42nd National Day's 'Spirit of the Union' theme, witnessing interest from thousands of people across the UAE and GCC.

Serving as a fitting tribute to the evolution of the nation, Dubai Culture handed out traditional gifts and National Day memorabilia to thousands of visitors to the event including shawls, flags, pins, and informative guides on the UAE.

Al Shindagha Historical Neighbourhood saw an increase in the number of visitors during the first three days of the celebrations, which focused on traditional activities, artistic performances, and competitions for children. The activities will continue until December 6, 2013.

During the ongoing activities, Dubai Culture will also devise activities for key upcoming observances including the Dubai Hospitality Seafood Competition, which takes place annually at Dubai Marine Festival.

Khalid Ali Bin Gharib, Head of the Organising Committee of the Dubai Heritage & Touristic Season, Dubai Culture & Arts Authority, said: "This year has seen unparalleled interest from residents and visitors to the city, with traditional performances of music and theatre proving to be the most popular among audiences. Visitors had the opportunity to learn about deep sea and pearl diving, Emirati weddings, as well as the urban dwellings of this region, which was truly enriching."

Nasser Juma, Member of the Organising Committee of the Dubai Heritage & Touristic Season, Dubai Culture & Arts Authority, said: "The number of visitors recorded during the National Day activities has demonstrated a genuine interest among visitors to learn about the heritage and culture of the UAE."

The Dubai Heritage & Touristic Season will host activities until April 2014, providing visitors with a wealth of activities to revel in.
