Thousands of revelers gathered in Downtown Beirut's Nijmeh Square Sunday for the first of the municipality's weekly public events. With security barricades recently removed and off the back of a successful New Year's Eve party, the Beirut Municipality announced earlier this month that it would host events in Nijmeh Square every Sunday. The clock tower at the center of the square served as the focal point of the day's events with food stalls from Souk al-Akel and foodie blog NoGarlicNoOnions radiating out through the pedestrianized square to provide sustenance. Later in the evening, musicians took to the stage to play for an older crowd who stayed to party into the night.Sunday's event was the municipality's first step to reviving the square.The Beirut Municipality could not be reached for comment on the success of the event.
