The Islamic Center of Boston invited the community to an Eid Ul Fitr Festival on Sunday.
Eid Ul Fitr is a day of celebration and gifts and great excitement within the Islamic community. The holiday, which occurred on Aug. 19, marks the end of Ramadan and involves gifts and surprises for children and, for the Islamic Center of Boston in Wayland, a chance to host an Eid Ul Fitr Festival the following weekend for the community. Member and non-member children and families enjoyed carnival style games, face painting and traditional foods. The festival itself was free, but the proceeds from the purchase of food and some other items went to support Syrian families.
