Ramadan 2015, Day 9 - Ramadan Car Parade

Every day during Ramadan around 5pm people get in their cars and do an impromptu parade along the Corniche (near West Bay). I think it stems from bored people cruising around in cars waiting for iftar time and it's now become an event where lots of Qataris show off their new cars, vintage cars, or just weird vehicles.

Many people go to the Corniche with cameras to take pictures.

Expensive cars

Colourful cars

Vintage cars

Unusual cars (for Qatar anyway)

Motorcycles and scooters

Sometimes groups with the same type of car would get together and go down the road slowly or form a line

In times past matte paint jobs were in, this year black is in vogue

The police try to crack down on kids hanging out of the vehicles but old habits die hard.

You should be able to catch the Corniche Car Show every day during Ramadan from around 4:30-6:00.
