Lusail Boulevard has emerged as one of the key destinations during Ramadan this year, as celebrations marking the holy month are being hosted there for the first time.
From car parades to firing of Iftar cannons and elegant decorations and illumination, Lusail Boulevard is providing residents and visitors with evenings to remember this Ramadan.
Having gained huge popularity during the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, the Boulevard has been hosting special events at frequent intervals - such as a motorsports extravaganza, the Darb Lusail Parade and the recently held Qatar International Food Festival - this year. Now, it has become a favoured destination for people during the holy month.
The place is attracting big crowds in the evenings as people turn up there to spend some quality time with friends and family, all while appreciating the decor and lighting, and the ambiance in general.
The festive illumination across the grand Al Sa’ad Plaza, along with light music wafting through the air, uplift the mood of visitors. The entire area and the buildings, shops and eateries are adorned with special decorations highlighting various Ramadan themes. The stunning illumination adds to the appeal, providing amazing photo opportunities. Also on offer are traditional activities and Ramadan tents.
“The place and its ambiance are highly welcoming and we love to come here. There is celebration, life and positivity. And it is also a good place to bring our children during the evening, giving them some amazing moments to cherish,” a Doha resident told Gulf Times.
Lusail Boulevard has been made pedestrian-only from the Maghrib prayer until the dawn prayer during the holy month of Ramadan, a move that has been welcomed by visitors.
“We thank the authorities for making the Boulevard a pedestrian-only during the evenings in the month of Ramadan,” the resident added.
"It is anyway a beautiful place. The serene atmosphere and special Ramadan decor have made it even better," said another visitor.
Various culinary offerings are available at the eateries and cafeterias that dot the Boulevard.
The spectacular car parade is one of the attractions this holy month at the Lusail Boulevard, taking between 4pm and 5.30pm. Enthusiasts get together and drive down the Boulevard, highlighting Qatar’s rich decades-long association with classic cars.
