Doha Event: Souq Waqif Spring Festival 2012

Almost missed this! Today's the last day of the Souq Waqif Spring Festival. We went there yesterday right after office hours, at 3PM at there's nothing just yet. As usual, kids event in Doha usually starts way past bed time for the Turknoy kids.

Anyhow, we saw two stages and kids play area with lots of bouncy castles. Looks a lot of fun for kids.
And according to the Gulf Times, it was a lot of fun indeed.

The Spring Festival at Souq Waqif has attracted a diverse range of spectators, especially on the weekends, director of Souq Waqif, Mohamed al-Salem, has said.

Speaking to Qatar News Agency in an exclusive interview, al-Salem said that the visitors were amazed by the various shows on display.   
He said that the aim of the festival was to entertain adults and children and the Souq Waqif administration had provided brochures listing all the festival’s scheduled events and the assistance of the “Al Fazaa” police.
The festival, which will run till February 29, brings a variety of artistic show and entertainment programmes from around the globe and features a wide array of programmes, including the ‘spring and colours’ carnival. 
The activities include performances by award winning magician Jay Matiolli and Scottish artist Stevie Starr, martial arts show, BMX bikes show, laser shows, ‘living statue’ performers, to mention a few. 
Besides these internationally recognised artistes are also staging music shows.

Well, visit to Souq Waqif is always a welcome treat for the kids to see camels and horses! And of course for us to be nostalgic about how Souq Waqif used to be when we always hang out during our single days!

First stop: Camels! 

loving the horses going back and forth the Souq!
