Meet the people behind Suhoor Fest, the Ashura Procession, the Ramadan Tree, and many more local adaptations and innovations surrounding Islamic holidays. We’ll ask the important questions: what does a hot dog stand have to do with night turning to day in Dearborn during Ramadan? Will the city include Ramadan in its annual holiday lights competition? Qeema or Harissa? Who is selling all those lights, flags, banners, t-shirts? Who is designing them? What’s the reason for the season? Join us to find out what is now and what is next!
