Enjoy Some Festival Action at Souq Waqif
Souq Waqif has kicked off its first ever Spring
Festival with a whole host of awesome activities for everyone. Running until 21
February, the festival will include a huge range of unusual and exciting shows
and activities. You’ll be able to watch some of the cutest sea creatures,
dolphins and penguins, put on a watery performance and see
a man being shot at enormous speed from a real cannon!
There will also be a world
class magic show, live theatre performances and carnival rides as well as the
opportunity to plummet towards the earth at incredible speeds while attached to
a piece of elastic with Qatar’s highest bungee jump – should you be so insanely
inclined that is.
In addition, Qatari men and women will be dancing
and singing along to live traditional folk bands for your viewing pleasure plus
you’ll be able to get your hands on some delish Arabic nosh from the numerous
food stands and stalls lining the cobbled streets – can’t say it gets more authentic
While we aren’t entirely sure what would
possess someone to want to be a human cannonball, nor do we get the whole
bungee jump thing, from a spectator’s point-of-view, we can’t wait!
