A Friendship Parade will be held today to showcase the love and unity of expatriate communities with Qatar.

The parade will be held at the Aspire Zone on Monday, December 17, at 3pm. (End time hasn't been announced)

The event is being held for the second consecutive year in response to the desire of expatriate communities to show their love, appreciation and loyalty to Qatar and its leadership, as well as the efforts to highlight their positive contributions.

Aspire Park gates will be closed during the time of Parade.

It is organized by the Organizing Committee of Qatar National Day 2018 and the Foreign Ministry’s Protocol Department, diplomatic missions and accredited offices. It also comes as part of the National Day's vision of promoting loyalty, unity, solidarity and pride in the national identity of Qatar. Last year, the Organizing Committee held the first Friendship Parade and saw more than 55 communities living in Qatar participate in the event. This year, the parade is expected to see much bigger participation from expatiate communities. The Friendship Parade will celebrate the 130 years of prosperity, for which all Qataris and residents contributed to. Communities will present their culture and folklore through stalls set-up in Aspire Park. The participants will also highlight their contributions to the development and progress of Qatar. The parade will also show the solidarity between the citizens and residents of Qatar, which is is rooted in the country’s social structure.
