Building on the success of the previous three editions, the Qatar Hot Air Balloon Festival is gearing up for its 4th edition, planned from December 7th to 18th. This spectacular event is intended to attract even more visitors and make Qatar a must-visit global destination for hot air balloon enthusiasts.
Sunrise Balloon Launches
The sunrise launches are going to be just as the name says, at sunrise, and if you do not want to miss them you will have to wake up a tad bit earlier and either watch the skies or come join in at our take-off points and witness the launching of over 50 balloons!
While you are enjoying the performances and appetizing foods from various cuisines, and your children are having fun at the gaming zone, you will get the opportunity to see a Hot Air Balloon professionally tethered and anchored to the ground while floating just
above you. The tethered balloons are just as dynamic and interesting, and if you’re lucky, you might even get to fly in one.
As the night will set over Doha and the festivities go on , enjoy a unique sighting of illuminated Balloons stacked next to each other while the pilots assure, they are glowing in the dark in perfect rhythm accompanied by the festival’s musical events from the main stage, creating a lovely vibrant atmosphere and an experience like no other.
Which Festival is great without dance and music performances? There is always something to watch for at the festival and this year a variety of performers are set to wow audiences at the 12-day event.
An extensive lineup of mascots, jugglers and others has been set up to provide entertainment and enhance the overall festival experience for visitors.
In addition to being fascinated by the striking display of Hot Air Balloons, the younger crowd will have more to look forward to. A special arena has been designated for all kinds of different games that young ones and adults can enjoy during their visit to the festival.
A host of games will be held at the venue including carnival games, team games, human football, football darts, VR games, electronic games, themed jumping houses, and slides.
No matter the age, there will be something for everyone to try out. Make sure to bring the little ones along!
Food kiosks and trucks
It will be double the pleasure for foodies out there as the festival will have plenty of choices for food, which will be available at various kiosks and trucks spread across the venue.
