Doha: To mark this year’s National Day and celebrate Qatar’s glory and show national solidarity under the leadership of His Highness the Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, Aspire Zone Foundation (AZF) has announced a series of exciting and unique events at Aspire Park for the local community.
The events include a whole day celebration for AZF employees on December 14. Aspire Zone CEO Mohammad Khalifa Al Suwaidi and other senior officials will be in attendance.
AZF staff celebration will include cultural activities such as the traditional ‘Ardha’ sword dance by Aspire Academy student-athletes and AZF staff, a falconry, camel corner, opportunities for Henna drawings and a traditional Majlis.
On Saturday, December 16, Aspire Park’s skyline will witness one of the biggest parasailing performances conducted by the Internal Security Force (Lekhwiya), who will descend in formation into the Park behind the lake near Al-Furousiya Street from 3 to 5 pm.
Lekhwiya special forces will dazzle with lively shows performed by their well-trained horses and police dogs. These include displays of a variety of horse formations and barrier jumps, and a tent pegging demonstration, a sport of ancient origin in which riders overcome an obstacle course while riding a horse and wielding a sword.
Throughout the weekend, Aspire Park will dazzle attendees with its beautiful display of maroon LED flowers on the lake, complementing the colourful decorations all over the park.
