Its Time Again for the Festival of Light in Kuwait

Evening went to Ahmadi area, where every year the"Festival of Light" take place in the month of February. To commemorate the National and Liberation Day, the entire Ahmadi area, including streets, parks, offices, trees, church and houses are beautifully decorated with lights. Firework displays takes place in the evening.

Ahmadi is one of the six governorates of Kuwait. It is located in the southern part of the country and is famous in Kuwait for its greenery and British architecture. It forms an important part of Kuwaiti economy as several of Kuwait's oil refineries are located here. It is popularly known as the home of KOC (Kuwait Oil Company).
