Katara, last week, had announced 60 events including workshops, art exhibition. and other reacreational shows as part of its eight day celebrations. A dancing fountain show accompanied by national songs was said to be highlight of the celebrations, that takes place every 20 minutes from 4pm each day.
Apart from this the cultural centre will also showcase parachute parades and spectacular fireworks as part of QND 2017.
Seems like Katara is the place to be during this Qatar National Day.
