Pico Bahrain was appointed by the Ministry of Works and the Ministry of Municipalities Affairs and Urban Planning to execute the 43rd Bahrain National Day in December 2014. The event was themed around the love and loyalty of the Bahraini people towards their country, with the flag colours white and red complemented by Islamic motifs and contemporary design elements embellished in gold.
The Pico team used a water concept to create a spectacular celebration. Bringing in water fountains from France, lasers from Belgium, multimedia production from Italy, projectors from Germany and fireworks from Dubai and Europe, Pico Bahrain gave the audience a rare experience, reliving the story of the island nation.
The show commenced with the national anthem and a Quran reading, followed by a trip down memory lane through a presentation on the history of Bahrain. The country’s heritage and culture came to life on water screens, accompanied by an elegant poetry recital. The second act took the audience through Bahrain’s journey towards a modern kingdom. The final flourish was a laser and fireworks show celebrating the King.
