The Pearl-Qatar to launch carnival
Doha, April 10, 2012
The Pearl-Qatar, a major urban development, is set to host a carnival from April 12 to May 11 featuring musical acts and performers from around the globe in a celebration of The Pearl-Qatar’s multicultural community.
While the carnival atmosphere will continue inside the retail precincts, a main stage will host top performers including a jazz saxophonist and dance troupes showcasing routines from the Arab world as well as countries including Russia, Spain and North America.
Meanwhile magicians, human statues, stilt walkers, jugglers and acrobats will keep residents and visitors entertained. A children’s area will see face painting, balloon animal making and other activities including arts, crafts and games.
Visitors will be able to “walk around” all of the carnival attractions.
“The Pearl-Qatar is a true multicultural community and what better way to reflect that than to hold a carnival with performers and activities from the Middle East and around the world that will appeal to the entire family,” a spokesperson for The Pearl-Qatar said.
“The Pearl-Qatar is a true family - oriented environment and residents and visitors will be able to enjoy the festivities in a vibrant yet relaxed atmosphere.”
Festivities will run Thursdays through Saturdays and will kick off every evening from 6pm. – TradeArabia News Service
