Source ::: The Peninsula DOHA: The final preparations are underway for Qatar’s high-profile National Day Celebrations beginning tomorrow. Filled with fun and activities, the event is set to become a fiesta for all. The State National Day Celebrations Organising Committee (SNDCOC) met yesterday to review the preparations. The committee is planning massive traffic diversion on the Corniche on the final day of the celebrations on December 18. During peak days of the celebrations, public would be advised to park their vehicles at a specially designated area and the organisers would arrange tranport service to the public to reach the Corniche, sources said. Though Corniche would be the major venue of the daily events, traditional cultural events would take place outside Doha. Darb Al Saai camp in Rayyan will host the traditional horse race, camel race and camel dressage from tomorrow until December 16. More than 400 participants including a few from Saudi Arabia have registered for these events. Special events for children and youth such as the National Day Children’s Painting Competition, Traditional Children’s Games and school Flag Raising Open Days have also been lined-up in the camp. The finals of traditional sword dance-Arda will be held at the camp on Wednesday. The camp will host an Arabic poetry night on December 17. On December 15, performance by a Qatari artist will be projected live on the CBQ tower on Corniche from 6pm to 7pm. A two-day symposium on Modernisation and the Preservation of Tradition will open at Doha Sheraton and final round of the poetry recitation competitions for Qataris will be held at the Qatar National Theatre on the same day. The grand finale would take place at the Corniche on December 18 marked by a number of events including the National Parade showcasing Qatar’s defence strength and weaponry. This will be followed by vintage car and boat shows. Qtel is the main sponsor of the event. Qatar Petroleum is the gold sponsor. “We all feel a sense of hope at our nation’s ongoing development, and a sense of pride of the strong foundations of Qatar’s tradition and heritage,” said Sheikh Abdullah bin Mohammed bin Saud Al Thani, Chairman, Qtel. “In sponsoring this important event, Qtel is doing its part to bring the community together to share the message of solidarity, loyalty and pride in Qatar.” “As a proud Qatari corporation with international reach, QP is happy to be a part of this exciting and unique event as Gold Sponsor of Qatar National Day 2009” said QP Public Relations and Communications Manager Sultan Al Abdullah.
