More than 24,000 people attended the ‘Sea Festival’ held at Bahrain Bay between October 25 and November 3 as part of the kingdom’s calendar of events.
The festival, organised by the Bahrain Tourism and Exhibitions Authority (BTEA), featured a number of activities, including a gaming zone, VR Boat Adventure, a museum, an aquarium and a “Fisherman Village” which included kiosks dedicated to traditional handicrafts related to the sea, including pearl merchants. There were more than 20 food vendors for visitors to enjoy, as well as line-up of live performances by traditional bands participating in the event.
The festival also included boat tours inside Bahrain Bay, water activities such as kayaking, paddling, rowing races and the Russian Jetski Show.
Hosting the festival comes in line with the BTEA’s overall strategy aimed at developing and strengthening the tourism sector under the slogan of ‘Ours. Yours.’, which contributes towards the kingdom’s economy and the 2030 Economic Vision.
