On October 18, 2013 Friday evening, IITS and Divan Center celebrated the Kurban Bayrami (Eid al-Adha) with the local community including people from various ethnic groups at Culbreth Middle School in Chapel Hill.
The program started with serving of dinner including traditional samples from Turkish cuisine. After the dinner, the children were entertained with several activities (including moon bounce, cotton candy, face-painting, balloon animals) to feel the bayram (festival/eid) atmosphere while the adult guests were enjoying classical Turkish and sufi music samples presented by Abdullah Demir and Ercan Dereyayla in the auditorium. The event ended with prize drawings for gift cards from local Turkish stores.
