Qatar: activities to do during this weekend!

1-Meet Barca stars

Three of the world’s top players from FC Barcelona will be in Doha today (July 5).

The stars from the Catalan side – center-half Gerard Piqué, defender Jordi Alba and midfielder Sergio Busquets – will meet and greet people at the Mall of Qatar’s Oasis stage (in the main ground floor food court) at 3pm.

Entry is free. For more information, see here.


2-Entertainment City

This venue is one of the centerpieces of Qatar’s annual Summer Festival, and is being held at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Center (DECC) in Dafna/West Bay.

There are more than 60 attractions on offer this year. They include an obstacle course, paintball zone, an indoor zipline, trampolines, Bricklyn Lego and Timba Cars – which is a combination of bumper cars and giant football.

This is in addition to the arcade and other games, food and souvenir stalls. Additionally, this week is Bollywood themed, so international dance team D4Dance Qatar will be performing alongside Pakistani rock band Raakh.

 The shows run from 5:30pm to 10pm on Friday and Saturday. More information is here.

Entry to the DECC is QR15 per person and attractions cost extra, depending on the game. A day ticket is QR150.

Entertainment City is open daily from 2pm to 11pm and runs until Sept. 5. More information about the summer fest is here.


3-Karting culture

Looking for an adrenaline kick? Try your hand at karting at the Losail Circuit this weekend.

Hurtle round the track at high-speed during one of the weekend sessions, which run every Thursday and Friday from 5pm until 10pm.

Residents over the age of 15 years old can take part (although those under 18 years need to have signed permission to participate by a legal guardian). The 15-minute sessions cost QR100 plus QR15 for helmet hire, if drivers don’t have their own.

Register at the circuit’s VIP car park. You can find out more here.
