The Color Run is known to be the happiest 5K on the planet, and is one of the most entertaining events ever. As runners, who start their journey in white, get doused with colors at every 1-KM checkpoint.

The race first kicked off in 2012, and since its launch, it has witnessed the participation of more than 7 million participants in 40 countries, and thus donating more than $5 million to charities.

So not only is it a fun run, but also a charitable one!

The event is organized in the light of the GEA’s efforts to attract top entertainment offerings to the Kingdom, “The Happiest 5k on the Planet” will make its mark on the Kingdom as part of this year’s worldwide “Color Run Hero Tour,” and 15,000 participants are expected in each city.

What is even nicer about the race, is that it’s not competitive at all, so all you get to do is create unforgettable memories while still making your community some charity work.

It serves as a celebration for health, individuality and happiness.

The GEA is showing support to the event by its continued efforts in enriching the lifestyle of residents in line with the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 reform plan and the Quality of Life Program 2020.

The Color Run was hosted in the UAE twice in 2018, and massive crowds attended the events to take part or cheer for the runners.

The theme of this year is celebrating the hero within you, the hero that makes everything possible. And the fun doesn’t end at the finish line, but continue with huge celebrations that include music, photo ops, activity booths, vendors, and more massive color throws.

The city of Taif has witnessed a remarkable performance from Ukrainian and Russian musicians who played symphonies by Mozart and Beethoven at the Rose Village in Arrudaf Park. 

The show made sure to take on the theme of Ward village and therefore had the musicians dressed as white flowers and imitated rose ones, the thing that made the show extra special and personalized.

 

The musicians played from a height of seven meters, and still managed to delight the entire crowd with their amazing performance of the famous symphonies.

The reason behind having such a huge event as Ward village is to promote and show recognition for the rose as an icon to the city.

“The festival’s content was elaborated, and all the activities and events organized so as to promote the value, and the social and economic significance of Taif’s roses,” Mashaal Al-Rashid, head of the company organizing the Rose Village Festival, stated.

Ever since its launch, the Taif Season has turned the entire city into a magnet attracting visitors from all the surrounding regions, and the main hero of the events this year and the one proving to be the most popular is the Ward Village. 

Rose Village has so far has been bringing daily around 10,000 people to Arrudaf Park, where they get to spend the entire day there enjoying the live entertainment and shows.

“By the end of August, when the total number of those who visited our village is disclosed, I am sure the figures will be surprising. For the time being, we can say that we receive about 10,000 people per day. The exact number will be announced at the end of Taif Season,” a spokesman said.

What makes the event special is that the village is bringing together art, dance performances and music all together by blending them with the fragrant roses in the summer resort.

The village also brought one of Europe’s leading entertainment troupes and bands who helped create an amazing atmosphere for visitors and added a touch of joy for visitors.

 

“Some activities are repeated three times a day to cater for the flow of visitors who come at different times,” he added.

Activities include the rose lab, where attendees get to learn all about the rose oil industry and how fragrances are made, it includes all the steps from when the rose is picked to condensation and, finally, bottling.

 

Another show you don’t want to miss out on is the horrible rose shows, yep I didn’t misspell that, the horrible rose introduces to multiple rooms with dim lighting, sound effects and characters from horror movies! The surprises inside are what make the visitors’ experiences unforgettable.

 

You can also pitch in and help in making the local traditional handmade products, and create a sentimental souvenir with a memory that will last forever.
