Pokhara: A street festival is being organized here from December 30 to New Year’s Day 2022, with the objective of promoting lake city as a tourism destination.
Restaurant and Bar Association of Nepal (REBAN) Pokhara is hosting the festival around the slogan- ‘Promotion of Safe Tourism for Prosperous Society: Today’s Main Need’.
REBAN president Laxman Baral said the street festival will be organized in a bid to revive the tourism business which has been badly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
He added that this festival is a continuation of the annual festival which REBAN has been organizing on the eve of the New Year each year. “We are hopeful that the festival will draw the attention of the maximum number of visitors and encourage them to visit Nepal and Pokhara,” he said.
This will be the 23rd street festival since REBAN started organizing it 20 years ago.
