Board Walk Activities at the Pearl

A reader forwarded this in an email, which I notice is also in Qatar Living. I realise it has been going on for a week - this is the first I have heard of it. The events are located at the Pearl in West Bay, which is usually closed to visitors, so it might be a good time to check it out. (Could it be that the property crash is behind these events...?) Apparently passes can be obtained at the Oyster, although some Qatar Living users say that they have gained entry without a pass (presumably they are not smelly and badly dressed bachelors!)

November 1 - November 10 (4:00 pm - 9:00 pm)
Les Excentriques - As all the rest of the performers, Les Excentriques come from the city of arts and culture Paris. Their colorful costumes and diverse acts will entertain you in many different ways with musical instruments, acrobats, and dancers.
