Kuwait Fireworks 2012

I had mentioned in one of my previous post about the Kuwait Fireworks being held on November 10th 2012. Now this is kind of an update, but more of a compilation of information I have been coming across the internet. Lot's of bloggers have been keeping a tab on the November 10th Celebrations. The event is being organised by Filmmaster MEA.

November 11th, 1962 was the day went the enactment of the constitution of Kuwait took place. Therefore this year it marks the 50th anniversary of that historical event. The weekend in Kuwait is on Friday and Saturday, hence the government is holding all the festivities on Saturday November 10th 2012. The internet is busy buzzing about one of the shows highlights with the Fireworks display as it is making some history and breaking some records around the world. I will be giving the links for some of the sites.

The video is uploaded on the Youtube by Youtuber DestoorKuwait. Click Here if the above video is not working. I came across this video and some details about the fireworks display on Q8path website. The post mentions some details about the fireworks display going off in 9 different zones. from Kuwait towers till Green Island. Image is below (courtesy to Q8path) otherwise Click Here.

Also one can go through this post by Q8path mentioning about the different records they will break by pulling off the fireworks. (Image Below courtesy to Q8path)

Many of the bloggers have posting about this for the last few weeks. So I am adding the links below.

Mark has been updating information on his blog 248am. Fireworks Display Information and Fireworks Show Preparation Underway.

Expat and the City has also put up a post and given a link to one of the Interviews of the Pilots participating in the fireworks displays (Yes fireworks being launched from the specially designed aeroplanes). Saturday, November 10th Kuwait will make Fireworks history! Below is the video for the interview.

The whole event will take place between 3pm and 10pm. The Fireworks, Laser and light show and also the 3D projection will take place later in the night. Fireworks are expected at 8 pm. (Kuwait Local Time / +3 GMT).

I have tried my best in making the compilations from different post. But definitely the credit goes to all the bloggers who have being doing their best in collecting the information. I give them Due credit. I would also like to be forgiven if I have not mentioned anyone else as the internet is vast and the blogger community is immense.
