Summery festivals in Sawfar, Qubayat


Al Shaya Women’s Association in Saoufar inaugurated yesterday the Corniche Sawfar craft and mooneh fair for the fourth consecutive year. Sponsored by the municipality, this year’s exhibition carried the theme, ‘Sawfar for All’ and will run till Sunday. Shop owners, coops and local associations from the town and environs participated, showcasing their products, including clothing items, food and ceramics. The event which is part of efforts by the municipality to promote tourism in the area, includes sideline art performances, a play, music and songs as well as entertainment for children. On the other hand, the Qubayat International Festival kicked off with a touristic-environmental event par excellence aimed to spotlight the natural treasures and scenic landscapes of Akkar, as said the president of the festival, Cynthia Hbeish. The festival, she explained, is divided into two parts: the first is an eco-heritage-tourism two-day event, and the second embraces an art performance for three days starting August 10.
