Aspire Zone Foundation (AZF) has concluded its inaugural Aspire Wonderland Festival amidst a crowd of thousands! The festival is thought to be the first of its kind in Qatar. 

The festival managed to captivate the attention of more than 70,000 visitors who flocked to Aspire Park to enter an imaginary gateway to the world of fantasy and folk tale. The visitors also had the chance to witness a spectacular dancing water fountain on Aspire Lake that moved to the sounds of majestic melodies along with advanced laser techniques.

During the seven-day festival, AZF used more than 400 thousand LED light-bulbs, 3,000 metres of electrical wires and 20 projector systems to design 310 characters.

The festival attendance numbers were also aided by exemplary facilitation processes that AZF provided for adults, children and special needs individuals to reach the event site.

Nasser Abdullah Al-Hajri, the Director of PR and Communication at AZF, commented:

We are proud to have welcomed such vast numbers of visitors to AZF and the successful use of our resources and world-class facilities to serve the community in new and exciting ways. Over the past week, we have succeeded in adding new and distinctive activities to Qatar’s calendar and we plan to provide more in the coming period. I would like to extend my appreciation and gratitude to the sponsors, partners and AZF’s team for their unceasing efforts in making the event a success.’
