The three-day mega event, which is being conducted from 29 June to 01 July 2019, is a joint effort of Army and J&K civil administration, to showcase and harness the unfathomable natural resources in and around Wular Lake.

The Wular Sports Festival is also aimed at creating awareness amongst the locals about the tourism and sports potential of the vast natural resources present in the Valley.

The first day saw the local fishing community from 16 villages actively participating in boat race competitions. The boat races were flagged off by Deputy Commander, Watlab Sector, inside Wular.

This mega event was witnessed by almost hundreds of locals who were cheering for their respective teams. The crowd was exhilarated and the number of persons increased as the programme unfolded into a marvellous experience.

Further continuing the Mega Event on 30 June 2019, “Jashn-e-Wular Run” of approximately 10 km will be conducted. Heats of Three Men and Single Men boat races will also be organised on the second day.

The locals of Bandipora have applauded the efforts of Army and turned out in huge numbers to support and witness the event.
