Zareena Anwar, program director of the expo, said she joined the Perfect Muslim Wedding team after the idea for the expo had already been hatched by the organization’s founder, Javed Mohammed. She also volunteered at the Halal Food Festival in Newark in August, and said nothing like this expo had been held before.

This is our sixth annual festival and it’s gained in popularity over the years.”. Activities are planned for the whole family, all of whom are invited to come in their most creative costumes to join in the costume parade in the park at 1:30 p.m. Fido is also invited for the 1 p.m. canine costume parade.
