RIYADH: Crowds have been lapping up aqua entertainment in the form of a dolphin show, as part of Riyadh Season.

Located at Boulevard World, one of the city festival’s main activity zones featuring the largest man-made lake in the world, the shows also include performing seals.

While the seals perform acrobatic routines with their trainer, including playing with hula hoops, the dolphins jump over a 3-meter-high bar, dance together, sing, and paint on canvas.
