You don’t have to be a plane-spotter to be excited about the Bahrain International Airshow this year. The bi-annual event is actually far more than Boeings, Airbuses and jet fuel, in fact it’s a family-friendly weekend full of fun activities. Get involved with some Bubble Bash football (try and score goals while wearing a large inflatable bubble), or try your hand at the CXC Flight Simulator. Mingle with roaming entertainers like street magicians, human statues and stilt walkers, or visit Heritage Village for a dose of culture. Throughout the three days there will also be a variety of performances with local bands and DJs, and international illusionist One with Magic will also blow your mind.
BD10 (adults), BD5 (children). Thursday January 21 – Saturday 23. Sakhir Airbase, www.bahraininternationalairshow.com.
