This year's Ramadaniyat Beirutiya festival kicked off this week, ushering in days of cultural, culinary and creative delights that aim to recapture the spirit of old Beirut and celebrate Ramadan traditions during the holy month. Over 40 NGOs and 15 embassies are taking part in the annual social and cultural festival in BIEL, which opened Tuesday evening. Each year the festival takes on a new theme, and this year visitors are taken back to the streets of Hamra in the 1970s where they can relive the glory days through displays of vintage cars and old bicycles.Musical performances from Kamandjati and Kifah al-Masri were also heard during the first day of the festival.
