Darb Al Saai activities for Qatar National Day 2019, which were launched on Thursday, continues to attract large numbers of visitors from all walks.
Yesterday afternoon, the venue received large numbers of people, especially families with their children, who were keen to take part in the various activities. Horse and camel riding, basketball, science and technology games, colouring activities, a miniature traffic village, different police exercises presented by the Police College and other military activities and shows by the Ministry of Defence and various other activities are among the attractions.
The venue is fully equipped and arranged for the convenience of the visitors with multiple entrance and exit points from different directions with proper signage to guide the visitors. There are also a good number of toilets at various locations, points of medical services, assistance counters and a variety of retail outlets including shops selling groceries, fast meals, herbs, perfumes, toys, souvenirs and gifts, local tradition dishes, and others.
Throughout the venue, there are adequate numbers of staff to assist the visitors. At each entrance, children are given a paper bracelet to wear with the name and phone number of their parents in order to easily reunite them with their parents in case they get lost in the crowd.
Besides volunteers from Qatar, there is also a team of volunteers from Kuwait to take part in the celebrations of Qatar National Day as Qatar had taken part in Kuwait National Day earlier this year.
