DAMMAM: A children’s theater organized by the Events Fund at Asharqia Chamber on the second day of Eid Al-Fitr in the Eastern Province drew praise from both visitors and residents.

Events held simultaneously at Al-Rashid Mall in Alkhobar and Dareen Mall in Dammam will continue for six days, and will include children’s theater, instant photography, free-hand drawing, smart games and face painting.

The children’s theater attracted a large number of residents and visitors. Some areas were dedicated to children’s amusement, with stage performances to show their talents. The Events Fund offered prizes to children enjoying the events.

Virtual reality video games were popular, with children lining up to take part, while visitors flocked to the face-painting activity’s five dedicated places.

Visitors commended the activities, which were enjoyed by children and people of all ages. Mother-of-two Sarah Al-Roueishid said that she was happy with the time both her children spent in activities, and hoped that the events will be organized again in future. 

At the Green Hall events, which will continue until the fifth day of Eid, the stadium was filled with visitors watching the shows.

The audience booked their seats early to watch international groups, such as Comedy Acrobats, the children’s play “My Little Pony,” Ukrainian group Light Balance, the Lebanese group’s basketball acrobatics and the “Pride of the Earth” show.

The nine-member dance troupe Light Balance presented a number of overlapping and artistic performances as part of an exhilarating show.
