December is proving to be one of the most exciting months of 2019 for the people of Qatar.

In addition to the football action, presented through the 24th edition of the Arabian Gulf Cup and the highly-anticipated FIFA Club World Cup Qatar 2019, a host of musical performances by renowned regional and international pop-stars are set to leave citizens and residents in awe.

Enriching the vibe of the month is Qatar's first hot-air balloon festival that kicked off on December 7 in Aspire Park with more than 30 balloons from 13 different countries.

Entry to the festival is free of charge.

The 12-day festival brings together teams from the United Kingdom, the United States, Qatar, Italy, Croatia, France, Lithuania, Spain, and Belgium.

The teams will fly over Doha's landscapes at a maximum height of 2,000 feet (610 meters) every day after sunrise. Each flight will last up to an hour.
