Doha Festival City will hold this year’s Qatar National Day festivities from December 14 to 18, between 2 pm and 10 pm, with a range of family-friendly activities.
To mark this special occasion, messages of gratitude will be placed throughout the mall. At the same time, shoppers will get the opportunity to participate in a series of unique festivities and enjoy the celebratory atmosphere.
Visitors to the Mall are also invited to share their appreciation for Qatar by placing messages on the ‘Message Wall,’ installed at the Market Corridor on the ground floor. To provide a contactless and safe experience, Doha Festival City will invite Qatar residents to share their congratulatory messages and wishes on the mall’s website via QR code. The messages will then be printed and placed on the ‘Message Wall.’ The submissions will be accepted until December 17.
Doha Festival City will also feature an augmented reality ‘Selfie Mirror’, placed at the Centre Court on the first floor from December 14 to 16. The installation is composed of a photo booth with a sensor placed on the screen. Guests who would like to take pictures can have their photo automatically taken with no touching involved and in line with the mall’s safety measures.
Participants will also be offered the opportunity to try on traditional Qatari attire for their photos and change the background virtually by waving with their hands from afar. Guests’ photos will be shared with them via email, and the best picture will win an iphone12 prize from the mall, to be announced on the mall’s Instagram page on December 18.
The mall will be decorated with Qatar flags throughout the nodes, along with hanging banners and special lighting; guests will also enjoy special décor lighting and 3D animated projections on the mall’s entrance façade and Oryx shape installations.
