Fifth-Annual Family Fun Fall Fest
October 31, 2021 @ 4:45 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us for the Fifth-Annual MCC Family Fall Festival. This year, we will have a halal food truck, a unique interactive animal show, goodie bags, and more!
Join us for fishing activities, potato sack races, face painting, freeze dance, Knowledge Quest, a special kid halaqa, and more! This is a family event!
At registration, children will receive a wristband assigned to them at five levels: Level A (ages 0-3), Level B (ages 4-8), Level C (ages 9-12), and Level D (ages 13-17). They will then go on a trivia quest around the prayer hall and answer age-appropriate questions about the Qur’an and Seerah for prizes. Volunteers mark participants’ punch cards for each correct answer. The more correct answers, the larger the prize. Study questions are available here and will also be emailed to registered parents.
RSVP is requested so we can have enough goodie bags for all children. This popular event is positively capped at 300 children.
Sunday, October 31 | 4:45 p.m. (Asr) to 8 p.m. (Isha) Ages 2 – 17 | $2.00 per child | Parents entrance (and children under 2) are free
Our special needs family guests receive free food vouchers for every member of the family attending, fast passes for all activities, goody bags at registration time, special seating during the animal show, and quiet space, if necessary. Questions? Please email MUHSEN special needs coordinator Ayah Refai at email@example.com
