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.
Hosted by MindWhisk and Virgin Radio Lebanon, the picnic succeeded in achieving their set goal, which was to break the record for the largest picnic in Lebanon.
As promised, there were many activities like flying kites, playing Baby Foot, and even practicing Yoga!
Local bands and DJs, the JLP show, Nour Nimri, Soundz Good, Mougleta, DJ Mass, DJ Martin Avari, DJ Rolly, YAM, and B.O.X. together helped create a fun musical atmosphere for all the attendees.
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.
