Hyatt Plaza teamed up with The Qatar Centre of Social Cultural for the Deaf to organise Garangao celebrations at the shopping mall. Hundreds of children dressed up in colourful Garangao costumes (sodairy for boys and bokhnog and golden head accessories for girls) on the occasion. The celebration held at the Hyatt Plaza stage in the food court started with a short statement by Fuad Shaqadan, Senior Marketing Executive, welcoming all visitors on behalf of the Hyatt Plaza management. Then a special gift and appreciation letter were presented by a representative of The Qatar Centre of Social Cultural for the Deaf to the Hyatt Plaza management for holding the event. Special Garangao bags filled with nuts and candies were distributed to all the children, after which the children and adults went around Hyatt Plaza singing Garangao songs accompanied by a drummer who was brought in specially for this celebration. The Qtel and Commercial Bank outlets, the Pari gallery and orchestra distributed Garangao gift bags to all the children. This was followed by children’s games organised by Qatari actors Shuail Kuwari and Sara, who introduced different kind of activities prepared for the Garangao celebration.
