The 12th annual Yanbu Flowers and Gardens Festival is a spectacular event going on now through March 25th.  It is open daily from 4-11pm.  It’s also open in the mornings to just walk around the gardens and pools, but the vendors are not there during the day.  Over the past three consecutive years that I have gone, it has just gotten bigger and better with each year.  The event is extremely well organized, managed and run, so I take my…

A Peek Inside a Saudi Wedding – Photobook Photography Article

2017 Yanbu Flower Festival Coming Soon – Photobook Photography Article

This year’s festival will be held March 14th through April 7th, 2017.  There is no charge for admission. Here in Saudi Arabia, one of my pet peeves is that it is difficult to find out about events before they happen. I believe the reason for this lack of proper advertising for events ahead of…
