MUSCAT, JAN 9 - The Sultanate’s annual cultural and entertainment extravaganza, the Muscat Festival will begin at Naseem Gardens and Al Amerat Garden on Thursday. It will start at 4 pm.
“There will be a grand fireworks show and a laser show at Amerat Gardens at 8 pm on Thursday,” Ali bin Khalfan al Hasani, Assistant Chairman of Media Committee of the Muscat Festival, has said.
“We advise visitors to come on time so that they will not miss the show because of heavy traffic.”
Al Hasani said this year’s festival will have a good line-up of socio-cultural events.
“We will have huge infotainment events catering to visitors from diverse nationalities, including a performance by a popular singer from India at City Amphitheatre in Qurum,” he said.
“Popular artistes and troupes will make the latest edition of the festival different from the earlier ones.”
Al Hasani said a friendly cricket match between Oman and Indian teams will be held at the Sultan Qaboos Sports Complex in Bausher during the festival.
The festival, which will run until February 9, will be open for public from 4 pm to 11 pm on weekdays and until midnight on weekends.
Some days have been set aside for families and women. The entry fee for adults is 200 baisa and for children 100 baisa.
Both Naseem Gardens and Al Amerat Garden are decked up after the maintenance works.
