RIYADH (Rahnuma): The streets of Riyadh are covered with the green of the Saudi national flag, which lines the capital’s main highways.
Green is the theme color of all the events that have taken place in Riyadh from Sept. 19-23 to celebrate Saudi National Day.
Activities at Riyadh’s National Museum have included performances by folk bands, an Arab falcons show, interactive workshops to teach children about Saudi heritage and culture, displays of classic cars, film screenings, food carts, raffles and prizes. Visitors also have the opportunity to donate blood for King Fahd Medical City.
There is also an exhibition at Panorama Mall, where 13 archaeological pieces from the pre-Islamic history of the Arabian Peninsula are on display. Volunteers are at hand to explain the significance of these pieces.
