JEDDAH: The Jeddah 2024 season was officially opened on Thursday under the theme ‘Once More’.

The opening ceremony was held at the Jeddah Art Promenade under the patronage of Prince Saud bin Mishal bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud, Deputy Governor of the Mecca Region and Chairman of the National Evaluation Committee of the Jeddah Governorate, and Prince Saud bin Abdullah bin Jalawi, Governor . from Jeddah.

Visitors were treated to drone shows, fireworks and other visual displays as the season’s schedule of events was announced.

“The fireworks were amazing!” said local Abdul Rahman. “They lasted 15 to 20 minutes and the whole crowd was mesmerized.”

Another visitor, Sana Hamid, said: “I have never seen so many people at an opening ceremony. It was absolutely magical and I can’t imagine how incredible the rest of the events will be.

“Crowd management was also impressive. Even though we had to walk around a bit, the arrangements were well organized.”

The Jeddah 2024 season lasts 60 days and is full of activities and events for all tastes. It is also designed to boost the Kingdom’s economy and provide jobs to the youth.
