Anyone wanting to get a glimpse of rich Pakistani heritage, culture and cuisine must head to Al Bahja Hall in Qurum on Saturday, where the Pakistan Social Club Oman and the Embassy of Pakistan will be hosting the colourful “Pakistan Cultural Funfair 2016.”

Initiated last year, the event serves as a window to the wonderful world of Pakistan’s rich heritage, culture, cuisine and will be a lot of fun for the families.

Sheikh Murad Al Hoothi, member Majlis Al Shura, will be the chief guest on the occasion.

Scheduled to start at 11 am, the funfair will continue till 9 pm and is likely to attract a sizeable crowd, including members of the Pakistani and diplomatic community in Oman.

When asked about the further details, Naheed Naveed Atif, charge d’affaires, embassy of Pakistan, said the funfair is being held to highlight the real Pakistan and its heritage and culture.

“This funfair is a manifestation of how good our country and its people actually are. By showcasing our world-class products, such as furniture, textiles, garments etc., we aim to highlight the gifts and talent of our people. I invite the people of Oman to come and see the wonderful performances by our youngsters to know how good Pakistanis are, even in performing arts,” she added.

The funfair would have a number of stalls displaying Pakistani dresses, furniture, bed-sheets and a range of household products to woo the visitors.

A fashion show has also been lined up to display the new collection of Zam Zam fashion wear.

Entertainment is going to be the name of the game at the day-long event and the organisers are quite confident that the funfair would prove to be a source of great fun for the families, particularly children for whom many amusement activities have been planned.

Apart from the cultural and musical performances, other activities will include henna stalls, face painting, and a quiz competition. An exclusive kids corner will keep the children happy and engaged.

Raffle draws and various competitions for women and children promise a number of prizes, including gold coins, mobile phones, LED TVs, household items, return tickets and Umrah packages.
