Eid Celebration Day in City Heights
City Heights? East African community gathered in Colina del Sol Park on November 27th to commemorate Eid Al-Adha, an important religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide. Hundreds of children bounced around the astro-jumps and took part in contests while their parents enjoyed both traditional Somali dishes and American barbecue.
The Huda Community Center, in conjunction with other non-profits, local businesses, neighborhood organizations, and other sponsors, organized the first ever Eid Celebration to honor the accomplishments of San Diego?s East African community and rejoice in the diversity of City Heights. Councilmember Emerald declared the occasion "Eid Celebration Day" in the Seventh District to commend the members of our East African immigrant population for their many contributions to our proud City.
