(Dubai) – A mechanical bull and plenty of red, white and blue confetti helped the American community in Dubai celebrate the 237th anniversary of their country’s independence, as trade relations with the UAE continue to grow. Consulate General of the USA political-economic station chief Tanya Spencer said the 4th of July event, attended by about 600 people, not only marked the US declaration of independence, but also the success of the American business community in the UAE.
This was the largest gathering of US citizens during the year. “It’s about tradition … it’s nice when you get that flavour of home here in Dubai.” Karam Noufal, who came to Dubai from Chicago two years ago, said the event was important to ensure his children kept their ‘bond’ with the US. “It’s good to belong to somewhere. “It’s fun for the kids and they can get to know their culture.”
