Yes, it’s an actual festival for Muslims over at my place this weekend. Hijabs, niqaabs, beards, halaal hot dogs, bouncy castles, street performers, spoken word artists, rappers, graffiti artists, face painters, drum circles, vendors, pony rides, firemen (oooh!!), plays, social activism, Media workshops, writing workshops, kids’ movies, and homemade lemonade.

Eryn didn’t quite know what to do at the drum circle. She loves banging empty cardboard boxes though — and my laptop.

Desi Doll. Recites verses from the Qur’an and sings cute little songs. I almost bought it. but at $45 and only one working model, I decided against it.

And how cute are these onesies??
