BIC’s Bazaar adds flavor to National Day Festival




Manama, Nov. 25 – (BNA): Businesses of all sizes are invited by Bahrain International Circuit (BIC) to participate in its National Day Festival scheduled to take place on December 13-17 in Sakhir.

“The Home of Motorsport in the Middle East” is set to transform itself into a place of celebration and entertainment as it welcomes the local community to commemorate Bahrain’s National Day and His Majesty King Hamad’s Accession to the throne.

Being supported by His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Crown Prince, Deputy Supreme Commander and First Deputy Prime Minister, this year’s cultural spectacle follows the success of last year’s event, which proved to be a massive occasion attracting more than 28,000 people.

Basel Qabouq, Director of Marketing and Communication/Guest Experience at Sofitel Bahrain Zallaq Thalassa Sea and Spa, is looking forward to being a part of the event for the second year in a row.

“It was a pleasure to participate in last year’s event, which gave us an opportunity to interact with the crowd and connect closer to them, as well as promote our latest events and promotions,” said Qabouq.

Jawad Mahmood, Owner of Shake Away Bahrain, concurred. He commented: “It is a pleasure to be taking part in this festival for a second successive year.

“Last year was a success. I encourage people to come and join us for this wonderful event.

“There was a lot of fun, games, and activities for the whole family to enjoy and it’s a great time to relax in the lovely winter weather and take part in the celebrations.”

The festival will be loaded with just as much fun and family-friendly activities, and BIC is inviting all families, both Bahrainis and expatriates, to come and enjoy all the colourful attractions on offer.

The circuit’s doors will be open to the public between 4pm and 10pm daily.

Part of the major attractions at BIC will be a bazaar featuring all kinds of local businesses including ministries, corporate stands, food and beverage stalls, and so much more.

There will also be live music, traditional shows, a wide variety of games and activities for both adults and kids, a brilliant fireworks display and many other fantastic surprises.

“As a local Bahraini brand, Jasmi’s is very happy to be supporting the BIC National Day Festival and the people of Bahrain,” said Lito Barcelona, Quality Control Manager at Jasmi’s Corporation.

“It was a great event last year. The festival was done very nicely and we are happy to come back this year.”
