Hari Nasional in Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei’s capital, starts early with a crowd of 20,000 gathering in the Padang for official proceedings. The Sultan leads the ceremonies in full military regalia, which includes a procession of the royal army, police, students, and organizations. The event ends with a performance of silat, an ethnic martial arts dance. Devout Muslims attend mosques to pray and listen to sermons and readings as part of the celebrations.
