Residents of Muscat will be treated to some dramatic nighttime fireworks displays in the coming weeks to kick off the National Day celebrations and the Oman World Fireworks Championship in December.

The two week long World Fireworks Championship, scheduled to take place from December 6-17 at Qurum National Park, will see six international companies competing for the title of World Champion.

These will include some of the biggest names in the business, including Howard & Sons from Australia, whose work was most recently seen at the Commonwealth Games in New Delhi, India.

“We have two events, one for the coming National Day, and a competition that will be held in December among six companies. These are official events, and there are a lot of things that have to be arranged,” said a spokesperson for the events’ organising committee.

The team behind the two events includes the High Committee for National Day Celebrations, Ministry of National Economy, Royal Oman Police, Ministry of Information, Oman Tourism Board, Muscat Municipality and Al Taseheel Al Wataniya and an organising committee that has been formed specially for the two occasions.

In a statement to the official website of the championship, H E Sheikh Subaah al Saadi, Secretary General of the High Committee for National Day Celebrations, said that Oman is delighted to welcome the world to Muscat for the event.

“Fireworks have long been an important part of our National Day celebrations, so it is particularly fitting that on this most special National Day we will be hosting the Championship.”

The annual road show carries itself all over the world with different companies invited to represent themselves and their countries with ever more complex pyrotechnic displays. The 2009 championship was held in Blackpool, UK.
