KUWAIT CITY, Oct 22: Kuwait is preparing to launch the first edition of Winter Wonderland at Shaab Park on Dec 1, featuring 28 games for all age groups, including action, children and family games, reports Al-Qabas daily. This is in addition to various recreational activities and a theater that can accommodate 1,200 people for entertainment and family shows. Shaab Park is one of the important sites under the management of Tourism Enterprises Company (TEC).
The site is currently untapped and it was chosen as the venue for the ‘Winter Wonderland Kuwait’ this year, as it has the necessary infrastructure for such an event. This is in line with the goal to effectively utilize the winter season this year until the main goal is achieved — equipping a huge site to accommodate the locals and visitors.
Talking about the selection of the site, Chairman of the Board of Directors of TEC Eng Muhammad Ahmad Al-Saqqaf explained that Shaab Park is the most suitable venue for the ‘Winter Wonderland Kuwait’ event this year — the first edition. This is in compliance with the royal directive to expedite the completion of development and entertainment projects that benefit the people and the commitment of the Mega Projects Committee that asked the Ministry of Finance to provide an entertainment facility which is ready for Winter 2022.
Al-Saqqaf stressed that ‘Winter Wonderland Kuwait’ is the result of the fruitful work of team formed by Minister of Finance Abdulwahab Al- Rasheed, consisting of Fadel Al-Dosari and Noura Al-Qabandi, in coordination with TEC and other concerned entities. Upon completion of the project, it will be a precedent in the implementation of entertainment projects; especially since the target completion period is less than four months — a manifestation of the commitment to develop the entertainment sector.
TEC and the Ministry of Finance team utilized the best foreign expertise specialized in organizing such events in order to transfer the experience to Kuwaiti youths and the local market, as youths will be involved in the daily operations. This project is also an economic opportunity with a positive impact on many vital sectors in the State; while other sites are currently being considered for the next season in 2023, which is expected to be in a much larger venue to include more games and entertainment events.
