Over 100 children dressed in traditional costumes celebrated a colourful Garangaoh Night at Al Mirqab Boutique Hotel, part of the Souq Waqif Boutique Hotels collection, where they were treated to an evening full of fun-filled surprises.

Children were able to spend time with a storyteller who shared with them tales of Qatar’s culture and heritage, as well as enjoy a variety of activities that are part of the annual Garangaoh custom, including games of musical chairs, creative arts and crafts session and Qatari Bread Baking, amongst other competitions. The night ended with raffle draws for 10 complimentary Iftar & a surprising one night stay at Al Mirqab Boutique Hotel. Vibrantly designed Garangaoh giveaways containing Arabic sweets, nuts and snacks were distributed to children during the event, which has been part of Qatar’s history.
