JEDDAH: The second edition of the Qassim’s Heritage and Classic Cars festival kicked off on Friday at Al-Nakhla Center in Saudi Arabia’s Buraidah.
The festival, organized by the Qassim Tourism Development Board, attracted a large turnout of classic and collection car enthusiasts from the Kingdom and Gulf countries on its first day.
The collection of 400 classic cars owned by Saudis and Gulf nationals transported visitors to a bygone era.
Ibrahim Al-Misheqeh, the director of the General Authority for Tourism and National Heritage and secretary of the Tourism Development Council in Qassim, said a productive families market and food truck corner were provided in addition to the rare car auction and the old car parts and accessories market.
“The council also organized a competition for the car owners, along with a myriad of activities targeting the youth,” he said.
Participants hailed the organization of the festival and the various facilities and services offered.
