This is a festival that has been held for quite some time in Riyadh every year on Eid Ul Fitr, and even this year, it has undoubtedly left everyone’s spirits awakened. This festival had consisted of children’s favourite cartoon and comic book characters.

They had marched forth in a captivating manner. With the spirit of carnival, and the essence of culture, kids and adults, that accompany the tiny ones, both were bound to fall in love with this festival, and so they did.

A plethora of shows such as military, folklore shows, light and sound events had also been held at the same carnival.
