Maplewood will be hosting its first annual Ramadan Moon Lighting on Sunday, March 10 from 6:00-7:30 p.m. at the Springfield Avenue Gazebo.

Members of the local Middle Eastern and Muslim communities have organized the event and purchased an illuminated moon to display at the gazebo throughout the month of Ramadan.

The event was inspired by neighboring West Orange, which will be hosting a crescent moon lighting for Ramadan at its town hall and displaying an illuminated moon.

The Maplewood event is sponsored by SOMA's Middle Eastern and Muslim Community, the Township of Maplewood, and the Springfield Avenue Partnership.
