NOTHING SAYS CHRISTMAS LIKE THE INTERNATIONAL SAND FESTIVAL. Spectators watch a car participate in the first International Sand Festival at Qaseem, about 300 km (186 miles) from Riyadh, December 26, 2009. More than 34 riders representing various Gulf states as well as Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar and the UAE, particpated in the festival, a car race held to attract more tourists to the desert.
