Katara Children’s Festival kicked off at Katara Cultural Village yesterday on the occasion of the World Children’s Day.
Director-General of Katara Dr Khalid bin Ibrahim al-Sulaiti said the three-day activities will take place at the courtyard opposite to the Amphitheatre and Al Thuraya Planetarium from 4pm to 8pm.
Dr al-Sulaiti noted that Katara has co-ordinated with Qatar Post to issue a special stamp for Katara on the World Children’s Day, through a children’s painting competition entitled, “Qatar in the eyes of children”.
The six best drawings will be selected at the levels of the primary, preparatory and secondary school, and valuable prizes will be awarded to the winners.
Dr al-Sulaiti invited families to ensure their children participated in the special festival, noting that the festival includes many cultural, entertainment and educational events as well as workshops, Al Dhad games, Arabic calligraphy, children’s murals among others.
The festival will conclude with an Animated Concert by Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra.
