The biggest Summer in Qatar program wrapped up on Friday, 16th August after a week of colourful Eid Al Adha celebrations in Souq Waqif, Al Wakra, Katara and all the partner shopping malls as well as a lineup of multicultural music, comedy, theatre and movie award shows. The grand finale of Summer in Qatar’s shopping celebration was held at Mall of Qatar, with winners of the third and final raffle draw announced.
