Eid in the Park organisers saw the third annual event grow in size again with more stall holders and visitors to 
Callendar Park on Sunday.

Run by Falkirk Muslim Forum, footfall registered in the thousands to celebrate Eid ul-Fitr and the end of Ramadan.

But there was more to the event said Avais Ijaz: “We saw real community cohesion. Different parts of the district, the Muslim community and the wider community, came together and made it a success.

“It has grown year-on-year andfeedback from visitors and stall holders was positive.”

Organisers from the forum, which incoporates many different Muslim groups, will meet on Sunday to plan next year’s extravaganza.
