There were a myriad of events all over Qatar this weekend!  There was literally something for every interest, every age, and every demographic.  Where to begin, where to begin?

We’ll start at the grand opening of the massive indoor entertainment centre Megapolis!  This event turned Medina Centrale into a carnival!  From those on stilts to those juggling torches.  This event was packed with excitement and festivities for all ages.   Believe us, in many cases the adults were just as excited as the kids (ahem – or more so)!

Next, was the Jazz in the Park event.  It’s a free concert offered by members of the Qatar Philharmonic orchestra in the Museum of Islamic Art atrium.  This offered a fabulous way to relax and unwind after the end of the work-week.  They had a great showing from the community and played some beautiful music.

Also, the Discover Bulgaria event at the Intercontinental Doha offered a spectacular experience of music, food, tradition, and culture.  The Intercontinental flew in chefs and entertainers straight from Bulgaria.  One no longer felt in Doha.  The food was fabulous with so many traditional Bulgarian delicacies.  The music and entertainment spiced up the evening, with people clapping, dancing, and socializing.   We shared a table with some lively Bulgarians who were so excited to share with us their traditions, customs, and must-try foods.  It was an awesome experience to be shared with family and friends. 

Finally, a festival you didn’t miss out on is the Magical Festival Village at Katara. Take your friends and family to meet Cinderella, Belle, Mickey Mouse and many more Disney characters. Have burgers at Elevation Burger, chicken at Nando’s or delicious traditional Qatari food for lunch or dinner near the beautiful fountain. A feature you definitely don’t want to miss is the 3-D cinema they have in store for you.

This is just a tiny sampling of all of the events that occurred this weekend.   And many are FREE.  Make sure to check out www.iloveqatar.net/events

There are also events happening all throughout the week, so you don’t have to wait till the weekends to enjoy a little bit of life.   We’ve got you covered so you’ll never miss out or be bored in Doha again!
