Muscat Festival: Al Naseem Park

Last night we decided to check out Muscat Festival at Naseem park, one of the two locations for the event. I was a bit worried parking would be a nightmare and it would be packed, but when we arrived at 6.30pm we found a place close to the entrance. Bonus.

As I mentioned the festival is an annual event, designed to exhibit local culture and art, as well as be a place to shop! Naseem Park contains the more family oriented events, so there are a lot of activities for children, and a huge market filled for the adults.

There are shows going on at various times, we got got to see some Omani men dancing, a childrens show, and a very impressive balancing spaceman act. We even got to see a few dinosaurs.

The festival is only on until the February 14 so if you are in Muscat I would urge you to check it out. I'm hoping to get to the other location, Al Amerat, to sample some Omani cuisine!
