This is so beautiful and it's free to enter which is very nice of the people who set it up. It's located in Mishref around the corner from the fairground. I passed it up when leaving the carnival and had to check it out. There are so many lights, food stalls, tent to relax and drink tea and a bigger tent with stalls to buy items.

'Our source, who has seen Samsung's new devices in person, tells us that the mid-level 64GB curved Galaxy S6 will cost carriers €949 ($1,076), with the top-end 128GB model priced at €1,049 ($1,189)—around €50 more expensive than the comparable iPhone 6 Plus.'
The same source also said the firm is having yield issues for the curved display, which could mean the handset is in very short supply when it launches.
For the non-curved Galaxy S6, European pricing is €749 ($849), €849 ($963), and €949 ($1,076) for the 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB models respectively - $100 cheaper than the curved version.
The site warns that these high prices could dent the phone's popularity.
'The pricing of both the normal and curved versions of the Galaxy S6, however—if carriers pass the price hike onto consumers—could be problematic unless the hardware is truly sensational.'
Samsung is set to unveil the handset in Barcelona on March 1st. link
The carnival is located in the same place as the P2BK event was in Mishref, it was cleaned up and painted for this event. There are several shows going on every half hour and the pirate show was the best. The entrance fee is 1 KD and there is VIP but not sure how much. VIP is great for front row seats to the pirate show otherwise you have to fight with the crowd to see it.
I made a turn to get out realizing the road had been closed so I was blocked in so I decided to go over the median curb to try and get out or be stuck for hours. As I got to the open road a police guy waved to roll my window down thinking he was going to help me get out, WRONG, he asked me for my license and registration. I was shocked I tried telling him I was trying to get out because I was stuck and finally he mumbled something smart and let me go. Sometimes it really is better to leave the country rather than deal with crowded venues, lack of parking and rude people.

National monument Kuwait Towers serve as a national monument which also houses a cafe, a restaurant and other facilities. The design of the towers was approved by Sheikh Jaber and was conceived by Swedish and Yugoslavian companies. The construction process took five years, from 1971 till 1976. The official opening ceremony occurred on March 1, 1979. The towers sustained some heavy damage during the Iraqi invasion in 1990, with the cost estimated around KD 2 million. After the invasion, repairs were done to the towers and they were re-opened on December 26th, 1992. —KUNA

"When I arrived at JFK, I approached a plane so tired-looking it might as well have been a Douglas DC-3. The blue and white livery sported nothing more than the airline’s name and an unidentifiable bird — speculation on the internet ranges between crane, stork, falcon, and “big chicken.”"You can read the full article here.
