Al-Marsad newspaper: Al-Ekhbariya channel documented a video clip to compare between entertainment at the time and what Riyadh is witnessing now after the launch of the “Riyadh Season”, which turned it into a piece of art visited by millions from different parts of the world.

Nowhere to be entertained

One of the citizens said that there was no place for entertainment, but at night they sat at King Fahd Stadium, and another boycotted it. The popular cafes were the most welcoming thing for young people.

A citizen indicated that he was forced to travel to the Gulf countries for entertainment, and also to attend the Janadriyah festivals.

Al-Ekhbariya’s reporter explained during the video, “Entertainment at the time was just a word that was lost in the material of expression. In Riyadh, at a time, everything could turn into luxury with personal judgments.”

Book fair and Janadriyah festivals

He added, like the Riyadh International Book Fair, this cultural phenomenon was primarily an entertainment event, as were the Janadriyah festivals or even flower festivals and others.

And he continued, and luxury on its origins was in the old amusement, which remains limited, even in the summer there were celebrations in various cities in a very primitive way and wild trips, and the efforts lead to something called entertainment we know by name but what we know about.

The festival days were 70 days, and they were extended after the season’s visitors reached more than 7 million people, in multiple areas such as the Bolivar, Waterland, safari and deserts, More than 100 activities distributed over 12 sites.
