Louvre anniversary celebrations witness large crowds

Even though the weather was not on its best behavior, a large number of people flocked to the Louvre Abu Dhabi to be a part of the first anniversary celebrations on Sunday. There were scattered thunderstorms in the sky but the crowds braved the weather to gather at Sadiyaat Island to attend the celebrations.

 Both local residents and tourists formed part of the crowd. There was a little disappointment though as the Dua Lipa concert got cancelled because of the unpredictable weather conditions playing spoilsport. Meanwhile, the Louvre Abu Dhabi took to their official Twitter handle and urged people who had bought tickets to retain them until further notice.

 The Louvre Abu Dhabi is one of its kinds in the region, opening its doors to the public last year in November. The museum has been a source of delight for art aficionados across the region. The Louvre is the only one of its kind apart from its predecessor in Paris.
