Katara, the Cultural Village will celebrate Garangaoh for the second consecutive year, with a variety of fun games and activities for children. The Garangaoh festivities will kick-start, across Katara’s grounds at 7:00pm on Monday 6th August. Festivities include a game of hide and seek with a twist where children will be tasked with finding hidden candies and treats. The aim of the game is to fill a custom made Garangaoh bag with as many candies as possible through their journey to find the secret door which hides the treasure. Dr. Emad Sultan, Cultural Affairs Director said, “Katara has seen throngs of people passing through the gates to enjoy the Ramadan activities and we are pleased to see families and children enjoying quality time at Katara. Garangaoh is a special time in Ramadan, when children can experience the local traditions and enjoy the festivities. We urge families to bring their children and let them be a part of the exciting fun and games.” Other activities include the screening of Al Freej in collaboration with Doha Film Institute at 9:30pm in the courtyard behind the Katara Art Centre, Building 5. Accompanying the screening will be five mascots from the movie, who will be entertaining children and distributing gifts. The Ramadan program includes other activities such as Qur’an classes, a Ramadan Souq, Book Bazaar, Islamic lectures, and Itlalet Ramadan. In addition, Katara Art Studios is also hosting a special painting program that caters to adults, families and children alike. - Check out more about the event here.
