ABU DHABI // More than 1,600 lighting configurations will decorate the capital’s roads, bridges, roundabouts and the Corniche to mark Eid Al Adha.

Abu Dhabi Municipality said decorating the city was part of its efforts to share festive events with all community members and to nurture the spiritual, religious and social implications of the religious holiday.

Decorations will include 21 geometric shapes carrying phrases such as “Eid Mubarak,” “Many Happy Returns” and “Eid Felicitations”. Other phrases will be inspired by Emirati heritage and customs and decorative works on five bridges and 11 roundabouts.

“Abu Dhabi will remain sparkling with lights throughout Eid Al Adha days to reflect the city’s civilised appearance, values and implications of Eid,” said a municipality statement. “[Also to reflect] the authentic Emirati customs and traditions and the peaceful ambience and love enjoyed by all community members.”
