Marketing Manager of Villaggio Mall, Carol Sabbagha, said:

We are delighted by the enthusiastic response to this first edition of the Villaggio Spring Carnival. We have noticed an increase in the number of visitors and the level of engagement of the audience with the different activities. Our aim in creating the festival was to create memorable moments for families and tourists visiting Qatar during this school spring break period. We are always looking for new ways to engage our visitors and provide them with a valuable experience that goes beyond shopping. As we strive to remain a top destination in Qatar, we seek to always add something new and different to our audience.’

In the Gondolania’s kids corner, children and families can watch a puppet show, color and get their faces painted – all of this while meeting and greeting their favourite characters. Children of all ages will find plenty to enjoy.
