Saudi Arabia marks spectacular Expo 2020 National Day

Saudi Arabia celebrated its Expo 2020 Dubai National Day on Friday with an array of events across the site that included a military-led parade and a stunning projection of the Saudi Cultural Show film at Al Wasl Plaza, with fireworks and concerts to come throughout the evening.

  • The celebrations kicked off with a flag-raising ceremony for Saudi Arabia and the UAE, and the playing of the two countries’ national anthems at Al Wasl Plaza. The National Day then continued with 18 events across 20 different locations, including Al Wasl Plaza, Al Forsan Park, Ghaf Avenue, the Business Connect Centre, Jubilee Park, Sun Stage, Sea Stage, Earth Stage and the main entrance of the Mobility District.
  • On the Sun Stage, the music of Al Ohali Family dazzled the crowd, while DJ Leen, accompanied by a Saudi graffiti artist, offered a unique performance on the Sea Stage.
  • Showcasing the kingdom’s rich past and bright future, a magnificent parade – led by 80 military band members, a fashion show of traditional and contemporary trends in the Kingdom, and a procession of horses – marched around the Expo site.
  • The Saudi Hawks, the Royal Saudi Air Force’s spectacular aerobatic display team, also stunned visitors as they jetted in formation above the skies of Expo 2020.
  • The celebrations are set to continue throughout the evening, with fireworks and performances on the Jubilee Stage by up-and-coming Saudi singer Ayed Yousef – known for his use of many sounds, genres and vocal styles – and ‘The Artist of the Arabs’ Mohammed Abdu.
