Drones take Year of Zayed celebrations to new heights

Published: Updated:

The UAE’s Abu Dhabi skyline is set to light up with 500 LED drones in commemoration of the Year of Zayed this weekend.

The event, said to be the first of its kind in the Middle East, will take place on Friday and Saturday at 8:15 pm, reported The National.

The festivity also coincides with the close of the “Mother of the Nation” festival in the emirate.

The Intel drones, referred to as shooting stars, will hover together to form the Year of Zayed logo. The light show will last for approximately five minutes.

Saif Ghobash, the director general of Abu Dhabi’s Department of Culture and Tourism, said: “This remarkable event truly captures the emirate’s spirit, which is grounded in heritage and tradition, but with a look to the future.”

“Merging the best of technology and art, this captivating show will enable us to tell the Abu Dhabi story in an impactful way and pay tribute to our Founding Father, using the night sky as our canvas. We would like to invite everyone across the UAE to join us,” he added.
