  Largest plate of dates-Liwa Festival sets world record
-- Organizers of the Fourth Liwa Festival have created a 10.06m x 2.03m steel-made dish, Heaped with 2,000kg of juicy dates, setting the world record for the Largest plate of date.
  Photo:The enormous oval-shaped platter, which measured 10.06 metres by 2.03 metres was laden with khlass, barhi, kasaab and shahal dates, showing off the best of Al Gharbia’s top-selling produce. (enlarge photo)

   It is part of the tradition to serve date in steel dishes and not of porcelain or china.
   The dates had been donated by Liwa farmers. The plate, fitted with 15 carrying handles, was manufactured in Abu Dhabi and had to be transported to the Western Region by an oversized lorry.

  Mohammad Khalifa Al Qubaisi, a member of the organising committee told Gulf News "we could not count the dates in the dish but it could be about one million fruit."

  As the pride of the festival claimed its place in history, Mohammed al Qubaisi, one of the organisers, said: “This will enable us to become known internationally; we are really happy to have this record and achieve something for our country.”

   Another record was very nearly set when an unnamed festival-goer offered to buy the plate – complete with dates, worth an estimated Dh300,000 (US$81,680) – for Dh4 million. The offer was declined.

  The festival is organised under the patronage of General Shaikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces.
