Abu Dhabi lights up with stunning decorations to celebrate Eid Al Fitr
The Department of Municipalities and Transport (DMT) has completed the decoration of main and secondary streets, public squares, and bridges throughout the Emirate of Abu Dhabi with illuminated shapes and decorative imageries in celebration of Eid Al Fitr.
The aim is to bring joy to the community and express happiness in welcoming this cherished occasion.
Municipal teams from Abu Dhabi, Al Ain, and Al Dhafra regions worked on installing Eid Al Fitr decoration shapes as an additional adornment to Ramadan decorations, embodying the spiritual significance of Eid Al Fitr for the community.
The shapes feature a combination of geometric designs, stars, crescents, and congratulatory messages for Eid Al Fitr. A number of illuminated structures and formations were added specifically for Eid Al Fitr and installed on front lighting poles at every intersection of main and secondary roads. The decoration also covered major bridges and prominent infrastructure landmarks that define Abu Dhabi's urban identity and cultural character.
The Eid decoration shapes include several greeting phrases that are well-known in the UAE society, such as "Eid Mubarak," "May you have many happy returns," and many more expressions that wish you a happy and blessed Eid.
Multiple colours were integrated into each decorative formation to give them a unique shine that distinguishes them from other occasions. Annual decoration works have become part of a well-established tradition in the UAE, associated with national and religious occasions, reflecting the identity and cultural and social heritage of the UAE community.
Decoration works are part of efforts to create an atmosphere of joy and happiness, which contributes to improving positivity and enhancing the quality of life in the Emirate's society.
The Department of Municipality and Transport is making sure that the illuminated formations and structures used for the Eid Al Fitr decorations are of appropriate size and safe for road users, including both vehicles and pedestrians. The DMT is also ensuring that all decorations are of high quality, with good insulation and weather resistance, and made from sustainable and eco-friendly materials.
This effort is in line with the UAE's declaration of 2023 as the Year of Sustainability, which aims to raise awareness about sustainability and encourage individuals, institutions, and businesses to adopt environmentally friendly practices. The DMT is focused on promoting sustainable practices in all of its initiatives, projects, and activities, including the decorations used to celebrate Eid Al Fitr in Abu Dhabi.
