Here is a little bit about Bahrain National Day. On August 15, 1971, Bahrain won its independence from the British. However, the country celebrates its national day on 16th December as it is the day the former ruler Isa bin Salman Al Khalifa ascended to the throne. National day is celebrated with great zeal, fervor, pride, and enthusiasm.
In honour of Bahrain’s National Day, every year Bahrain International Circuit will host a spectacular display of colourful fireworks for you and your family to enjoy on National Day. The event will take place on December 16, 2022
