VIDEO: Saudi National Day Celebrations Underway

Music, clapping and dancing in front of city hall as a group mostly made up of international students celebrate Saudi National Day.

The president of UNB Saint John's Saudi Students Association Marwan Alkatib tells CHSJ News when he came to the Port City two years ago to take mechanical engineering he wasn't expecting the community to be so welcoming. 

He's originally from Medina, a city on the West side of Saudi Arabia, and says the ceremony makes him feel like he's back at home.

Events showcasing Saudi Arabia's culture will be happening in the uptown area and on the UNB Saint John campus over the next six days.
