The festival welcomed thousands of people to the Corniche to celebrate Eid with a variety of activities, shows, food, and fireworks.
Thursday will conclude Qatar’s first three day Eid Festival with a plethora of entertainment for everyone.
The extraordinary event began on May 3 and attracted thousands of people during the Eid holiday to take part in many fun activities along the Corniche, including a colourful firework show, an exceptional Balloon Parade and an unforgettable parade.

The parade was supposed to take place everyday throughout the festival, but was cancelled on the first day due to bad weather conditions. However, those who are visiting on the last day on Thursday can still see the amazing show.
