Falconry and other fun at Eid Family Fun Day
Hot air balloon rides and falconry displays are just some of the events to see at this year’s Eid Family Fun Day.
The fun-filled afternoon returns at Richmond upon Thames College in Twickenham later this month with something for all the family to enjoy.
The community event aims to promote multiculturalism and celebrate community cohesion.
Special guests in attendance for the big day will be the mayors of both Richmond and Hounslow.
The day aims celebrate Eid-ul-Adha, which marks the end of the Hajj, or pilgrimage to Mecca.
And among the activities will be face painting, a father’s massage, hook-a-duck, pony rides, beat the goalie, bouncy castles and fairground rides.
Organiser Juwaria Rahman says: “It was great last year seeing a diverse range of people come out and support the idea of working together to achieve something great.
“I really hope children will engage, as there are season tickets to be won to the Hounslow Urban Farm, as well as signed Mo Farah postcards, as well as a state-of-the-art Dyson.”
There will also be a programme of events including a falconry display and science show.
The event will also be fund raising for charity with Feltham Food-Bank having a collection box for non-perishable food items for people to donate towards.
The mayors of Richmond and Hounslow will hand out prizes at 3.15pm.
