Spring Festival at Souq Al Wakra begins tomorrow

Qatar’s Souq Al Wakra is set to host Spring Festival from January 19 to February 13. The festival will feature artistic activities as well as entertainment shows and games for children.

In a statement to Qatar News Agency (QNA), Manager of the Souq Al Wakra Khalid Saif al Suwaidi said that the festival is being held at the souq which is ideally located and it overlooks the sea for the first time.

One of the highlights of the activities will be staging of an operetta on life in Qatar before the discovery of oil and gas. The operetta focusing on people’s dependence on pearl diving will depict the horrors of the sea.

A small game zone for kids will also be established near the parking area. The second day of the festival (January 20) will see 15-minute fireworks for the first time.

Suwaidi said that though Souq Al Wakra was coordinating with Souq Waqif in Doha to organise the festival, the activities in both the places as part of the festival will be entirely different from each other in order to give people more options.

Souq Al Wakra has become a favourite destination for outings as the souq includes cafes and restaurants and a charming view in addition to traditional buildings portraying Qatar’s architectural heritage.

    Stop Fireworks. It’s a waste of money and then this money is plucked out from the pockets of people by drastically increasing petrol prices every month !
    Please do not be unthankful to favors of God and waste the provisions which can be used for other good cause. This money can be used for giving free gifts to children/ residents. I’m sure they will be more happy than being happy for 10/15 minute fireworks.
    Give a thought!
