Not that it has been mentioned but I do think that some royals from neighboring countries will be attending.

Most streets in Dubai are decorated with flags and you can buy a lot of patriotic souvenirs everywhere (everything with the colours of UAE or scarves with pictures of Sheikh Mohammed and S.Hamdan) Unfortunately I couldnīt stay for the national day but hereīs a homepage with some events: UAENationalDay.ae
I am hoping for a big firework and seeing lots of pictures of the celebrations:-)

By the way,itīs also Sheikha Al Jalilaīs birthday (She was born on 2 December 2007)

Yes, a Parade with expected over 30,000 people attending and the rulers.
There have been festivals and celebrations for the past 40 days throughout the UAE. Streets, houses etc have all been decorated with flags and lights. Almost every house has a flag (by choice).
The parade today will be live on all UAE channels starting at 5:00pm (UAE time).

Gulf news has a lot of stories and pictures-Here a group of kids formed a Human UAE Map with approximately 5,000 students: gulfnews : Time to celebrate

I hope Sheikh Mohammed and Sheikh Hamdan will release more pictures & videos from the National Day celebrations or feel inspired to write a new poem for the occasion.
