Glittering Qatar National Day Celebrations

The 2011 Qatar National Day celebrations concluded with a magnificent fireworks display across the Doha Corniche produced by Howard & Sons Pyrotechnics. 

A massive crowd gathered along the entire length of the beautiful Doha Corniche, had earlier enjoyed a full day of celebrations featuring the traditional military parade but as the sun set the celebrations turned to the night sky for the glittering fireworks finale.

In a world first, the Qatar National Day fireworks display was conceptualized by the children of Qatar in creative workshops and then designed & produced by Andrew Howard, Stuart Bensley and the dedicated Howard & Sons crew of 20 pyrotechnicians.

From the children’s imagination, their colourful conceptual designs came to life in the fireworks display with several new and innovative effects that were exclusively designed & manufactured for the Qatar National Day display.

Aerial shell’s bursting in the shape of children’s footprint shells walked across the skyline. Pyrotechnic floral flower shaped petals, cubed building blocks and impressive letters spelling out Q A T A R arched over the skyline.

The powerful 11-minute pyromusical performance came to a thunderous grand finale with the Qatar national flag filling the entire sky with white and maroon pyrotechnic stars to the amazement of the entire audience.

Andrew Howard headed pyrotechnics team was delighted with the event. “We really enjoyed working with the Qatar National Day Committee and the children to produce this years unique display, it really was a great experience from concept to completion. Working on such a grand-scale spectacle, in such a beautiful location is a pyrotechnicians dream and we had a lot of fun along the way.”

“Stuart, Christian and the entire crew really did excel themselves, a huge amount of design, production time and hard work goes into producing a pyromusical of this scale. All that hard work was beautifully showcased throughout the entire display and really appreciated by the people of Qatar who gathered to celebrate their national day. Qatar certainly did sparkle.”
