A MONTH-LONG, winter-themed festival kicks off today at a major mall in Riffa.
Wadi Skate, at Wadi Al Sail, will feature dazzling ice-skating shows and weekly live musical performances, until September 3.
An ideal getaway for families from the scorching sun this summer, the festival will offer an indoor ice-skating rink, live music, food stalls and a pop-up market.
A National Son and Daughter Day event will also be hosted as part of the festival, where parents and their children can dress up as their favourite movie or cartoon characters and create memories together.
The festival, being organised by the Bahrain Tourism and Exhibitions Authority, is expected to contribute to the revitalisation of Bahrain’s tourism sector.
Wadi Skate will be open during the two-day Ashoora holiday.
It will be open on weekdays from noon to 10pm and on weekends from noon until midnight.
Tickets are priced at BD5 per person. For more information contact 17210940.
