Muscat, Dec 18 - Winter Village organised at Oman Convention and Exhibition Centre (OCEC) has been postponed for the last three days due to weather forecast. The Winter Village that offers an array of activities for families and local community is held from December 14 - 23. The village received over 16,000 visitors in the first two days.
