Wild West-themed festival coming to Bahrain

From Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid to Django Unchained, Western films have entertained moviegoers for decades, and the appetite for stories about the American Frontier shows no sign of slowing down.

And if you consider yourself among the Wild West obsessed, you’re in luck – because a new festival inspired by Western movies is coming to Bahrain tomorrow (January 29).

The Western, which will be held in Seef, will have everything from a rodeo bull and face painting to movie nights and food stalls.

Vendors already confirmed for the event include burger joint Melt & Mushy, New York-style Italian restaurant Red Sauce and Shawarma spot Pita Plus.

The month-long event, which is set to end on February 29, is expected to draw in more than 3,000 visitors every weekend.

Entry is just BHD1, and tickets can be bought on the door.
