It will be the largest firework display in the world and is poised to break the world record.

The fireworks will form the green background of the Saudi flag while 300 drones will create a laser image of its white horizontal sword.

A number of activities will be held across the Kingdom to mark the National Day.

These include a performance from Cirque de Soleil, which will stage its first ever show in Saudi Arabia .  For the one-off show, 250 costumes have been specifically made to adhere to the local dress code.
