During the khareef (rainy season), Ittin Rd is the main location of the Salalah Tourism Festival. Arab families from across the region come to picnic in paradise. Their favourite haunt is under the street lights of Ittin Rd where a large festival complex includes fun-fairs, clothes stalls, cultural villages, a theatre, restaurants and lots of small stands selling kebabs and shawarma.
Most of the restaurants and attractions are strictly seasonal, opening only between mid-June to mid-September. Check Oman Today for a program of nightly concerts and cultural activities.
