[TripAdvisor Contribution] Katara Cultural Village - Show and Fireworks for Eid Holiday

We took the children out to Katara to see the fireworks display that was on for the Eid holidays.

On a recommendation to be there early as the traffic is chaos, we arrived about 6.30 for the shows starting at 7pm and the fireworks at 9.30pm

After following the traffic in to the village, and parking up in the underground car park, we walked towards the atheneum and though out to the front where there was a stage setup. There was a seating area and also plenty of places around to sit/stand. Having found our spot, we settled down to watch the shadow show. The show lasted about 30 minutes and then there was a 30 minute break between performances. The show was done 3 times and then the fireworks started.

Between the shows, they were distributing gifts to the children, these were things like colouring books, yoyo's, toy cars etc. This bit was a bit chaotic and there was a lot of pushing and shoving by some of the crowd to get to the front of the queue. This bit definitely could have been more organised for the safety of the children.

There were also a few stalls for food and ice cream. We stopped for ice-cream and a small tub cost 10Qr (£1.80/$2.75) which was reasonable. We also took a walk along the front while waiting for the fireworks and then just before they were due to start, parked ourselves in front of one of the restaurants. The fireworks were out over the sea, so you could see them from anywhere around the area.

The fireworks lasted just under 10 minutes and were not too bad.
