UAE to launch camel festival in January


The festival will be organised by the Abu Dhabi Authority for Culture and Heritage (ADACH) and held in Zayed City in Al Gharbia (the Western Region).

Mohammed Khalaf Al Mazrouei, director general of ADACH, and chairman of the organising committee, said the festival will include many traditional events, such as the traditional market, competitions on poetry, photography, in addition to many surprises that will be announced later.

Mazrouei noted that the main event at the Festival - Mazayina Dhafra - aims to preserve the pure-bred local Asayel and Majahim camels.

More than 24,000 camels belonging to 2000 camel owners in the Gulf region participated in the last session for prizes worth approximately $11 million.
