The ancient Egyptians used to treat cuts, burns and just about anything with a little bit of honey. Little did they know that centuries later we'd take their obsession to a whole new level with an entire festival dedicated to just honey.
This October will see Egypt Honey Festival taking over Merryland Park for three consecutive days from the 16th until the 18th where thousands of people -- from bee keepers, honey farmers and basically anyone who is a 3asal fangirl -- celebrate the sweet nectar. Attendees will be able to learn literally everything there is to know about how bee keepers keep the bees and farm the honey, whilst also trying all different types of it. You will also be taught tons of new recipes from professional chefs. We here at SceneEats, however, are mostly excited about finding out what "pollen grain" is and how to use it to make our lives healthier.
The event itself is absolutely free to attend; all you need is the park's ticket. Oh, and don't forget to bring your kids because they have all kinds of activities for them.
