18th “Hala February” festival will kick off next month

Arrangements and preparations have been completed for the 18th “Hala February” festival that will kick off early next month, said the Higher Organizing Committee
on Saturday.

The annual month long national festival is part of the efforts to stir tourism, shopping and the entire economic scene, committee member Walid Al-Saqa’bi told KUNA.
Hala February 2017 will include a variety of events and activities, for all ages, including intellectual, literary, cultural, religious, entertainment and sports to promote Kuwait’s civilized image, added Al-Saqa’bi, who is also head of the festival’s media committee. Al-Saqa’bi noted that the 2017 version will also focus on youth’s small and medium-sized enterprises and initiatives. Four major private sector malls are taking part in the festival; one of the most successful shopping events in the Gulf, he noted.

The sector’s participation in the Hala February is growing year after year, he said, expecting up to 10 million reward coupons to be offered over the month. 

Hala February 2017 will offer prizes worth $2 million through a multitude of activities, including daily ones, cash and kinds’ awards. Many of the prizes will be handed over to winners live on and by Kuwait TV. Al-Saqa’bi expected 20 percent increase in participation in the festival.
