JEDDAH: Visitors to Riyadh Season have given a massive thumbs-up to a special event that highlights Saudi culture and heritage.
Nabd Al-Riyadh, or “Riyadh’s pulse,” showcases a different region of the Kingdom every day through folk dances, digital displays, laser shows, musical performances and an exhibition of traditional handicrafts.
“It was a great experience, especially as it took place at Al-Masmak Palace which was a significant starting point of the Kingdom’s unification. I appreciated the merging of history, culture and heritage with such a lively atmosphere,” visitor Mohammed Al-Saif told Arab News.
Maha Al-Ammar said Riyadh Season had added color to the city. “Riyadh has really changed. Look at where we were before and where we are now. Everything is so beautiful,” she said. “Nabd Al-Riyadh is such a well organized cultural event.”
Another visitor, Anfal Al-Jaferi, said: “We didn’t get to witness such events in the past, but now they are everywhere, in many zones.
“I didn’t feel the need to shop because the scenery was so enjoyable, and the themes of the events were mesmerizing. The effort that has gone into Riyadh Season is clear to see.”
Riyadh Season continues until Dec. 15 with a raft of artistic, sporting and cultural events, including theater, music performances and fashion shows.
