Qatar Today - - CITY LIFE -

More than 5,000 mem­bers of the lo­cal com­mu­nity took part in Qatar Foun­da­tion’s an­nual Garangao fes­tiv­i­ties at Al Shaqab.

As part of its com­mit­ment to pre­serv­ing Qatar’s her­itage, QF up­held na­tional tra­di­tions by bring­ing in the Garangao fes­ti­val that pro­vides a year-round cal­en­dar of cul­tural ac­tiv­i­ties. Dur­ing the fun-filled evening on the 14th night of Ra­madan that cel­e­brated youth and the rich­ness of Qatari cul­ture, fam­i­lies en­joyed a wide range of com­mu­nity ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing tra­di­tional Ara­bic games for chil­dren, arts and crafts and sto­ry­telling ses­sions, as well as the chance to try pop­u­lar Qatari dishes. Adding to the ex­cite­ment of the an­nual event, a num­ber of com­ple­men­tary horse-re­lated ac­tiv­i­ties were pro­vided by Al Shaqab, such as a me­chan­i­cal buck­ing horse and pony rides, which brought Qatar’s eques­trian her­itage to a young au­di­ence, in­spir­ing chil­dren to take an in­ter­est in eques­trian sport.
