Air conditioned malls around Qatar have been filling up with visitors this week as Eid festivities continue for a third day today.
Many shopping centers are participating in the Qatar Summer Festival, and will be holding promotions and entertainment events through July.
Though there are no Saudis in the malls this week, many Kuwaitis and Omanis have flown to Qatar to show their support for the blockaded country.
According to the Qatar Tribune, many visitors from these countries had been given various discounts to encourage them to come to Qatar.
Malls participating in the QSF include Doha Festival City, The Mall, Al Khor Mall, Gulf Mall, Mall of Qatar, Lagoona Mall and Landmark Mall.
Today, Doha Festival City will kick off a “special event” at 4:30pm that includes a mall parade, an African Drummer’s performance, an Ardha dance and an Ice Age Show.
The evening will end with a concert at 9pm by Qatari singer Saoud Jassim.
