    $5 fee per child reserves your kid's participation. Parents do not have to register for themselves. 

    In the spirit of inclusion and learning about our diverse Muslim community, the women of BBC are putting together this amazing family friendly event. If you are not familiar with this Ramadan tradition found in places like Iraq, Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman, etc. then you must come and check it out!

    All kids and their parents (dad's included) are welcome to stop by and grab some treats! You do not have to be Muslim to take part in the fun! We will be handing out beautiful Ramadan treat bags and other goodies for the kids.

    Kuwaiti Gargee’an:

    Gargee'an (Arabic: قرقيعان), sometimes spelled as Gerga'oon(Arabic: قرقاعون), is a semiannual[1]celebration, observed primarily in Eastern Arabia. It takes place on the 15th night of the Islamic month of Sha'ban and on the 15th night of Ramadan. It is celebrated by children dressing in traditional attire and going door-to-door to receive sweets and nuts from neighbours, as they sing traditional songs. The tradition has existed for hundreds of years, and is deeply rooted in some parts of the Gulf culture,[2] especially in Iraq, Kuwait, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia.[3]

    Although the celebration of Gargee'an shares superficial similarities with the Western Halloween custom of trick-or-treating, Gargee'an has no connection with horror and developed independently.
