On Friday, Expo 2020 Dubai launched its celebrations in honor of “Saudi Day” with an airshow by the Royal Saudi Air Forces, a marching band performance, and a fashion show, with additional events scheduled throughout the day.
According to the official SPA, Saudi Arabia’s Minister of Culture and Chairman of the Supervisory Committee of the Kingdom’s Expo pavilion, Prince Badr bin Abdullah bin Farhan, will lead the official Saudi team that will visit the United Arab Emirates to attend the celebrations.
Cultural performances and “different creative events reflecting the Kingdom’s progress and rebirth in all disciplines under the canopy of Saudi Vision 2030” are also planned for the day, according to the SPA.
The Saudi Hawks, the Royal Saudi Air Force’s aerobatic display team, went to the skies for a performance, with the aircraft outfitted with white, red, blue, and green smoke generators. The squad will perform on the 7th and 8th of January.
In addition, there will be a fireworks show in the evening to commemorate the Kingdom’s day at Expo 2020 Dubai.
According to SPA, two million people visited Saudi Arabia’s pavilion in 86 days last month. That’s over a third of all visitors to Expo since it debuted in October.
Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister, Prince Faisal bin Farhan, visited the Kingdom and UAE pavilions in November.
