ManamaBahrain’s first ever cat festival, Meow Day 2017 will be held on 1st December from 4 to 10pm at the pavilion in Adhari Park.

The festival, organised by 1984 PR in collaboration with Directions PR and Events, which is sponsored by Lulu Hypermarket, will offer visitors several feline-themed activities, including a beauty pageant and a “cat race” for cat owners who have opted to bring their cats following a pre-festival registration and approval process.

Other festival activities include a screening of funny cat videos, trivia quiz with prizes, and face painting for kids.
