The floats used in the first float parade held in Maldives in years to celebrate the Independence Day are scheduled to be displayed for the enjoyment of the general public this Sunday.
The progression of the parade floats as it made its way through the streets of Male’ City last Saturday evening was spectated by President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih and First Lady Fazna Ahmed.
The float parade displayed proof of talent and craftsmanship of Maldivian citizens. The parade floats spoke to both Maldivian history and tradition, and to modern Maldivian society. Some of the parade floats were designed especially for the delight of young children who lined the streets for a glimpse of the parade.
Maldives Ports Limited (MPL), Maldives Airports Company Limited (MACL), Bank of Maldives (BML), Male’ Water and Sewerage Company (MWSC), and State Electric Company (STELCO) took part in the float parade.
The parade floats will be put up for display to the public this Sunday at the Maafannu Velidandu located in front of the Male’ Sports Complex.
The Independence Day float parade on Saturday was held for the first time in two years.
