Hurstville celebrates Ramadan and Eid al-Fitr
Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar and is observed by Muslims worldwide as a month of fasting to commemorate the first revelation of the Quran to Muhammad. Ramadan began on Sunday May 5.
Westfield Hurstville celebrated throughout Ramadan with lots of exciting experiences!
Kids creative juices were flowing during Ramadan, where we had kids craft workshops including bookmark colouring in, star and moon craft and lantern making.
The "Festival of Breaking the Fast," Eid al-Fitr is one of the most important Islamic celebrations. Eid Al-Fitr generally lasts 3 days (June 5 - June 8). Whereby, the day begins with morning prayers, followed by visits to family and friends with the exchange of food and gifts.
Westfield Hurstville celebrated Eid al-Fitr with fun for the whole family. We had a chill out zone where we offered complimentary henna art, hair braiding with Just Cuts and kids lantern making workshops. We also had Lebanese drummers roaming the centre, loved by the Hurstville community.
Our mature customers also enjoyed a cooking demonstration, where Chef Daniel showcased his best eats for an Eid al-Fitr family feast. Fresh produce was showcased from our Fresh Food experts.
