H.H. Sheikh Sultan bin Zayed Al Nahyan Camel Festival, Sweihan, Abu Dhabi, UAE: During the camel racing event, both English and Arabic commentary was available to visitors in the marquee overlooking the racetrack.
At the start, camels raced past in a series of afternoon races. Several cars followed the camels around the racetrack in support.
Crowds cheered as camels raced towards the finishing line and as prizes were awarded.
It was an enjoyable festival held over several days last February – plenty of activities and events throughout included culture and heritage displays as well as traditional UAE folk dance performances.
