Souq Waqif Festival

It's festival week here in Doha and last night I was at Souq Waqif to enjoy the entertainment there. They actually had a lot set up:

A tent showing traditional Arab ladies singing and dancing

A stage for more modern performances, in this instance a contemporary dance troupe

Another stage for traditional music and dance, I'll take an educated guess and say these gentlemen are Omani

There was also a large kid zone with games

Pony rides

And camels

I believe the Souq Waqif Festival is on for the rest of the week. Unfortunately some of the parking has been taken up with the stages and games so consider using a taxi to get there. I think there might be a park-and-ride shuttle service but I couldn't find any details.
