Arab News article there would be celebrations in Kindy plaza at the Diplomatic Quarters where thousands of Saudi flags would be distributed and there would be a special program there. We live nearby and went to check it out, there was nothing there to our disappointment! Strangely the article also said malls such as Panorama and Hayat would have programs for kid, but in reality the malls remained closed on Sunday. I wonder how many people went all the way to these locations only to find out there was nothing there.
I love how so many Saudi women relax and let go of their cultural restrictions in public on occasions such as National day.
Everyone was in high spirits and donning at least a Saudi flag or something green!

My friend likes camels! I'm still too scared to get this close.
I love you! This is what some children came up to say :)
Please please take my picture too!
My daughter was scared of the coffee making baba. The first thing she said when he took her in his lap was "aiti!" which means mommy.
Meanwhile on the streets kids were hanging out of car windows, doors, roof tops and even sitting on top of the cars!
Older men enjoyed the fun in pimped up rides.
These boys better hurry before muttawa catches them!
And what would National Day be without a muttawa patrol? Here they are supervising on Tahlia street.
My daughter was in on the fun too!
