The Mega Night musical festival held in Phuentsholing from the 25th to 29th of November 2022 is the first of its kind. It was organized to entertain the local residents of Phuentsholing after the pandemic (Phuentsholing was hit the hardest and was under lockdown for around 2 years).

It also aims to convert Phuentsholing into an entertainment spot, where people can come together and relish after the day's hard work. Youth will spend time meaningfully, which will be good for their physical and mental health.

The festival also helped the locals resume their businesses, as thousands of people gathered for the festival. Some people travelled to Phuentsholing just to attend the festival, which shows the enthusiasm of the people.

The entry fee is fixed at Nu.300 each. The Thromde permitted the festival to start at 9 PM and end at 3 AM.

During the festival people from all age groups were seen enjoying the crowd dancing with their families and friends.

There are 48 stalls serving varieties of snacks and beverages.

One of the aims of the festival is to attract regional tourists from across the border (Jaigaon, India). However, only a few attended as they had to pay SDF of Nu.1200 excluding the lodgings.

There are a total of 30 local performers, which includes some famous bands and

artists, i.e. The Lama Cousins, Misty Terrace, O’Stranger, Ugyen Pandey, JD & amp crew, and many more.

There are exciting varieties of giveaways like Round trip Air Ticket from Paro to

Bangkok, Gift Hampers, and many more.

Such an initiative of the Government is viable and appropriate at this period of time, especially after an extended stay at home due to Covid-19. It will also bring social

vitality and enhance the business opportunity of the local people.
