What is Eid?
Eid, or festival, marks the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
NC Eid uses the celebration as the springboard for a cross-cultural event, including music and dance from many countries. This year, the Cary Concert Singers and the Green Hope High School Orchestra joined in the festivities, along with the Egypt Magic Carpet Dancers, Chinese Instrumental Ensemble, and performers from Peru, Turkey, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.
The full day program ran from 11 am to after 8 pm.
