The biggest ‘Summer in Qatar’ (SiQ) programme wrapped up on Friday after a week of colourful Eid al-Adha celebrations in Souq Waqif, Souq Al Wakrah, Katara – the Cultural Village and the partner shopping malls, as well as a lineup of multicultural music, comedy, theatre and movie award shows.
The grand finale of SiQ’s shopping celebration was held at Mall of Qatar, with winners of the third and final raffle draw announced.
During Eid holidays, residents and visitors enjoyed a Kuwaiti play Khutuat AlShaytan at the Qatar National Theatre while Blue Man Group enthralled young and old with their novel visual arts performance.
Omid Djalili, Nemr Abou Nassar and Hamad al-Amari had audiences in fits at the Doha Comedy Festival while Kadim al-Saher serenaded audiences for two nights.
The 8th South Indian International Movie Awards also brought a galaxy of hundreds of South Indian film stars to Lusail Sports Arena to attend the two-day mega awards show.
Adding to the Eid joy and excitement was the opening of Qatar’s first-ever indoor snow themed park Snow Dunes at Doha Festival City on the second day of Eid, where families enjoyed ice-cold temperature and a variety of activities and rides spread over 9,500sq m.
SiQ’s retail offering featured three monthly raffle draws, announced by the Qatar National Tourism Council and the Ministry of Commerce and Industry. Shoppers were able to participate in the draws with every purchase of QR200 or above at any of the 10 participating malls.
