Yes! The City Picnic Went Down in History as Lebanon’s Largest Picnic Ever

On August 21, Beirut’s Hippodrome hosted Lebanon’s largest picnic ever. The City Picnic took place in order to gather as many humans and pets as possible, and if you attended, then you helped make history! Over 6,000 people gathered in the green open space and participated in so many activities.

As promised, there were many activities like flying kites, playing Baby Foot, and even practicing Yoga!

Since the picnic was a success, they have decided to host two others in 2017. Roula Mezher, Managing Director of MindWhisk, reacted to the event’s success saying, “When I sense this exhilaration surfacing above all negativity, I feel that City Picnic succeeded in adding flavor to the daily routine of Lebanese citizens. City Picnic broke the record by proving that Lebanon is a dream land where we can be happy amongst all turmoil”.

City Picnic is in Partnership with Virgin Radio Lebanon.

I was born in Palestine but raised with the fireflies in Georgia. My teenage years were spent being the Muslim nerd who was known as the bookworm of the school. That followed me back to Palestine, to develop into being the girl with the big vocabulary. I spent most of my high-school days cursing Newton for not eating that apple. My English Literature Bachelor's degree was only obtained because I'm a nerd for literature and my minor in Translation pretty much pays the bills, thank you Birzeit University.Creative writing is my passion and reading is my escape from reality into a world where everything is the way you imagine it to be.
