Entertainment activities held at The Pearl-Qatar and Heritage Village as part of the Eid al-Fitr celebrations are attracting a large number of people.

At The Pearl-Qatar, a number of cultural, artistic and entertainment programmes have been organised and many children could be seen participating in them from early in the evening.

The activities and attractions include inflatable games, stilt walkers, art workshops, face and henna painting, clowns, balloon twisting and cartoon characters.

Most of the activities are being held indoors at 18 La Croisette and feature a range of family- and children-oriented recreational activities. Children also have free entry to the newly opened party venue, Tickles & Giggles, which is offering some new games and entertainment for kids.

Children were also seen enjoying the various competitions and colouring activities yesterday.

Among the visitors was a family of five from Pakistan, with the children taking part in a number of entertainment activities.

“It is a convenient place to enjoy the Eid festivities, especially for the children. As the activities are indoors, it is all the more comfortable for the kids. We came here yesterday and are back today as well. Hopefully, we will attend tomorrow, too,” said the children’s father.

The visitors were received with traditional Arabic coffee and dates. The festivities at The Pearl-Qatar will conclude today, with the activities running from 6pm to 10pm.

The Heritage Village at Al Bidda Park is also hosting a number of events to showcase Qatari culture and heritage. These include a range of children’s entertainment activities as well.

Many traditional items such as fishing baskets, nets and dhows, among others, are on display. Many people could also be seen displaying traditional food items.

There are some competitions for children and the winners are being awarded attractive prizes. Children are being entertained by popular characters and mascots besides participating in cultural competitions. Performances on the stage are attracting hundreds of people.

The activities, which take place from 6.30pm to 10pm at the Heritage Village, will continue until the fourth day of Eid. The festivities, though, have been scaled down to show solidarity with the people of Gaza.
