PHOTOS: Have a Look at Brampton's First Community Iftar
Last Week on Thursday (May 16), the first ever Brampton Community Iftar was held at the Rose Theatre and Garden Square.
The event was a major success, with close to 1,000 attendees including Mayor Patrick Brown, Members of Council, special guests and Consuls General.
The attendees enjoyed a spiritual stage program and cultural displays, followed by prayer and a traditional meal.
The event recognized the holy month of Ramadan with a free community dinner at sunset (when Muslims break their daily fast). Meals were provided through generous donations from local sponsors.
This event was part of Brampton's Community Recognition Program. The program is a series of cultural celebrations that the City is hosting throughout the year to honour Brampton's diversity.
These events give residents a chance to learn about other cultures and get to know the many communities that make up the city.
