City Centre Muscat and City Centre Qurum, the two much-loved shopping destinations in the Sultanate - owned and operated by Majid Al Futtaim - will come alive with vibrant traditional entertainment, dazzling décor and exciting giveaways to celebrate the country’s 47th National Day.

The malls invite the Omani community to celebrate the spirit of togetherness and show national pride by joining the mall activities that will showcase the heartwarming Omani traditions from November 16 until 18.

Visitors at City Centre Muscat and City Centre Qurum will get a taste of Omani hospitality all weekend as they will be treated to mouthwatering Omani halwa and coffee, a traditional way of greeting guests.

At City Centre Qurum, a 16-troupe folklore ensemble will display the wealth and diversity of Omani heritage with performances every day from 4 until 10pm. Dressed in attractive traditional dress, dancers will use various percussion instruments and spread musical harmony from the different regions in Oman. They will perform the Tamboura, Abou Zalaf, Al Manyour, Al Hattabat, Al Mzmar, Al Bar’aa and Al Maghayed, which will include singing, dancing and playing instruments.

“On this day of honour, we congratulate the leaders and Omani citizens on the 47th National Day.  With a deep sense of pride, we invite citizens, residents and tourists in Oman to celebrate this joyous occasion with us,” said Watfa Humaid Al Harthy, Senior Mall Manager for City Centre Qurum. 

Wisal FM will join in the festivities at City Centre Muscat and broadcast live from the mall from 8pm to 9PM. The presenters will create a joyful atmosphere, interact with the public and host competitions. Shoppers can also win prizes. Visitors can also take on the proud red, green, and white colours with the national flag that will be distributed by the presenters.

“City Centre Muscat joins the Sultanate in the weekend festivities to celebrate National Day with our special community initiatives, which aim to spread cheer and create great moments for our visitors,” said Husam Al Mandhari, Senior Mall Manager for City Centre Muscat.
