I received an E-Mail from Red Bull for an upcoming International Freestyle Motocross event at Kuwait Towers. I enjoy watching extreme motocross on sport channels and I guess watching it in real would be even more thrilling. I suppose this is the first time to have such an event in Kuwait but I think they should have chosen a different location with more facilities. So who’s going?
I was at Marina Crescent in the morning and saw there was a kids marathon going on so I went to check it out, I asked organizers about this event they said this is the Omniaty Kids Run and it’s a short marathon (1/2 km for ages 5-8 years & 1km for 9-12 years). I pretty much liked the idea so I decided to cover the event since they said all the registration fees (KD1) will be donated to children with terminal, and deteriorating Illnesses in collaboration with Bait Abdulla (BAACH).
I think this is the first well-organized kids marathon in Kuwait, I truly respect all those families who made sure to register their kids to participate in such a sport and health event. Charity aside, it’s important to raise our children with health awareness since and engage them in sport events since early years, it’s like an investment for their future. The kids were fun, I was enjoying an laughing at them because some of them were crying because they lost, simply adorable. I’d love to see more similar events in future and please “parents” involve your kids in such healthy activities and not just take them to fast food restaurants.
I was heading toward Kuwait City and saw they fixed billboards near traffic lights showing February National Day celebrations for each governorate of Kuwait. The one I saw was for Assimah governrate. It included festivals, musical fiestas, sports tournaments, fireworks and entertainment shows so I made you a brief list.
If you spot the activities for the other governorates please send us so we could share with you all.
If you thought we are done with bike shows for 2013, then you’re wrong! I got E-mail from Kuwait Riders which is the largest motorcycle riding club in Kuwait and it’s a part of the Riders International network all over the GCC, Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt, Syria, Egypt and Turkey that they are about to organize the 3rd Bike Show. The Bike show is basically a competition between the best motorcycles in different categories, customizing, accessories & the look of the bike.
I recall I paid their Bike Show a visit before and saw the most exotic looking bikes ever [link].

Every year Kuwait celebrates National Days in February with many recreational activities, I recall Hala February Festival was first launched back in 1997 and the purpose was to refresh tourism in Kuwait plus the positive influence on Kuwait economy of course. Though some people were questioning the success of this festival but I personally don’t look at it this way, I focus on the enjoyment part. This year Hala February brings more fun and more events diversity, I’ve prepared you a list for all the activities and events for Hala February 2013 which will kick off on the 15th. Enjoy!
