NATCHEZ — Goers to the Mudbug Music Festival enjoyed a few hours of carnival fun and the music of Red and the Revelers before the lighting put a damper on the festivities.

“We got to the point where every thirty minutes we got a call from the National Weather Service,” said SG Ashcraft, marketing guru for Ardenland. “Every time there is lightning we have to wait 30 minutes before they can play again. Due to noise ordinances we had to cancel if the show was pushed back past 9.30pm so it’s canceled for today’ today.

Ardenland has yet to announce if refunds will be issued. They are still “working out the details” and an official announcement will be made soon, she said.

In the meantime, Red and the Revelers continue the party at Smoots.

Saturday’s lineup includes Cody Jinks, Lukas Nelson & POTR, Lucinda Williams, The Wild Feathers and YZ Ealey. Doors open at 1 p.m.

The National Weather Service forecast for Natchez on Saturday calls for mostly sunny skies with a 50% chance of showers and thunderstorms after 11 a.m. That drops to a 20% chance of showers and thunderstorms later in the evening before 1am.

Good news for festival-goers and anyone interested in discovering the diverse cultures of our region.

The Carousel of Nations will return to its traditional format as an in-person festival across the region in June. This is after the past two years of virtual celebration due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This year’s festival will feature nearly 20 villages, ranging from Polish to Italian to Lebanese. Festival-goers will have the chance to visit several villages in the region during two weekends of festivities.

Windsor-Essex Multicultural Council Executive Director Fred Francis says it’s the perfect event for someone planning a trip abroad.

“Carousel of the Nations gives you the opportunity to travel around the world without leaving your city, and it saves you a lot of money in travel costs,” he began. “It kind of allows you to experience different cultures, and different foods, dances and parties.

Francis added that the willingness of so many groups to participate shows that people want to share their culture.

“It’s how important their culture is to them, and not just how important it is to them, but it’s important to them to share their culture with other members of the community, so people can learn about German culture, Italian culture, Chinese culture.”

The festival would have taken place had the COVID restrictions remained, but the team are thrilled to be back in person.

“We were also ready to go virtual, so we were trying to prepare it both ways. We hoped for the best but prepared for the worst. As the months progressed, we were like, ‘Okay, we’re going to be able to do this in person,’” Francis said.

This year’s theme is “Discover the Carrousel”. The festival dates are June 17-19 and June 24-26.

By Michael Hutchins Democrat Herald

Members of nearly a dozen Denison congregations gathered Thursday in recognition of the National Day of Prayer. The event, which was sponsored by the Denison Ministerial Alliance, brought together churches of different denominations coming together in their common faith to pray for the community.

“No matter what denomination we are, we are all Christians together, praying for our community, our nation,” said Reverend Justin Miller of the United Methodist Church in Waples.

While the days of prayer, fasting and thanksgiving date back to the country’s origins, the modernized version of the National Day of Prayer was created in 1952 by President Harry S. Truman. The day was formalized in the late 80s when it was permanently scheduled on the first Thursday in May each year.

For congregations in Denison, Thursday saw an attempt to return to normalcy after COVID-19 affected the final two days of prayer. Celebrations in 2020 and continued concerns over the pandemic have led to smaller, more congregation-focused festivities in 2021.

Miller said organizers hoped to have a return to Waterloo Lake Park, the event’s traditional venue, this year, but forecasts of rain and bad weather led organizers to move inside Parkside Baptist.

Thursday’s festivities focused on prayer for seven groups, including government, teachers, the military and others. While prayers led by local pastors focused on those areas, Miller said churchgoers likely have plenty to pray for in 2022, he said. Inflation is rising while there is an ongoing war in Ukraine. Meanwhile, the lingering effects of COVID-19.

Yet he encouraged those present to seek guidance and assistance from a higher power.

“The power of prayer is so strong for me in my life, and as a pastor I have seen prayer change the behavior of those who are prayed for,” he said. “There are also changes in our whole outlook and when we pray for someone it changes our outlook and the way we see it and how we deal with it.”

Were going to hold the event at his traditional Lake Waterloo Park home, but eventual storms moved him indoors.

“It’s a national thing where we come together around the world,” Miller said. “It is officially the National Day of Prayer where we pray for seven different areas of our nation, from government to military, media, business, education, church and family. is something that we as Denison and the community have been doing for several years.”

Likewise, he said there is strength in coming together in a common faith. Although there may be differences between different congregations, their common faith is stronger than these differences.

Here at Denison, we’re all about the community and we’re all about it,” he said. “No church is better than another church and we unite as churches, Christians working together.”

The extended Spartan family joins their alma mater this week as Lakeview Schools celebrates 100 years.

And one of his own is happy to help lead the charge.

“What an honor to be claimed for this,” said Frankie Ballard, a 2001 Lakeview alum and country singer with eight country chart singles. “I’m back. I just think the community should celebrate a great high school like this. I’m kinda doubly blessed to be able to hang out with the music department and the athletics department.

“It’s really exciting to be able to talk to young guitarists and baseball players because you never know, maybe the next big thing will be a Spartan.”

Ballard returned to Battle Creek to participate in the Lakeview Centennial Celebration over the weekend. He worked Thursday with Lakeview students in a high school guitar class and shared how he went from being a Lakeview student to a singer and songwriter in Nashville.

Ballard then helped the students learn the classic song “Ring of Fire,” which he will perform with the band during the festivities on Saturday. The former Lakeview athlete was also scheduled to throw out the first pitch Thursday at a college baseball game as honorary captain.

Santos called it “a symbolic moment not just for Azamara, but for the entire travel industry.” After a two-year hiatus, we look forward to continuing with new mindsets, new adventures, and new opportunities to learn how we can be better travelers.

“This is an exciting new chapter for our business, and we are so grateful to our hardworking team both onboard and overseas for making this possible,” said Azamara Chairman, Carol Cabezas. “Together, we look forward to taking Azamara Onward and our love of travel further than ever before, to connect even more customers with the many people and cultures of the world.”

Just like Day 1 of the 2022 NFL Draft, Day 2 started with the defense.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected Houston Cougars defensive end Logan Hall with the 33rd overall pick to begin Friday’s festivities in Las Vegas.

The Bucs acquired the first pick in the second round in a trade with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Tampa received the No. 33 pick and the numbers 106 and 180 in exchange for the No. 27 pick on Thursday night, which the Jags used to take Utah linebacker Devin Lloyd.

Hall is a long, wiry defensive lineman with a quick first step and good power and explosiveness off the ball who can play inside or outside. The Elder has shown the ability to use his length to push blockers away from his body and has a good range of swimming/slapping motions.

Standing 6-foot-6 and 283 pounds, Hall should be able to add weight to his frame at the pro level without losing explosiveness. The Cougar enters the NFL as a raw specimen with room to grow — including keeping his pad low — and could become a difference maker in Tampa.

In four years in Houston, Hall has generated 97 tackles and seven sacks, including six in 2021. Joining the Bucs fits well with Hall’s skill set, and he should become a productive player in Todd Bowles’ scheme.

For Tampa, the selection reflects its 2021 first-round pick of Joe Tryon-Shoyinka, an equally athletic passing thrower with room to grow. JTS had a strong rookie season playing in a rotation with Shaquil Barrett and Jason Pierre-Paul. Hall’s selection also comes with Ndamukong Suh still a free agent after three seasons in Tampa. If the Bucs get similar production from Hall in Tryon-Shoyinka’s freshman year, they’d be thrilled.

The Bucs’ goal over the past two drafts has been to get younger on the edge of the point. While Hall’s selection shouldn’t preclude a potential reunion with JPP, it does reduce the immediate need to add another point player for the Super Bowl or bust Bucs.

After celebrating his 22nd birthday last Friday, Hall can now celebrate after joining Tom Brady’s Bucs as the No. 1 second-round pick.

The grounds of Tamworth Castle were packed with enthusiastic visitors on Saturday April 23 for an incredible St George’s Day event, after being absent for two years due to the pandemic.

Growing numbers came on a windy but dry day as crowds estimated at more than 10,000 people enjoyed medieval-themed entertainment and festivities.

Families enjoyed free festival highlights during the extravaganza which included all of the favorite events such as jousting, falconry displays, a living history camp, stalls, fairground rides and children’s activities .

Crowds were thrilled to meet St George and the incredible new dragon of 2022. Standing at 3.5m long and 2.3m tall, the dragon entertained children and adults alike with its roar, swing of the tail and its eye movements; captivating the crowd as he strolled through the castle grounds.

The popular Great Medieval Joust has also made a spectacular comeback. The audience watched in awe as the action unfolded as the competing knights on horseback took to the main arena to show off their jousting skills. Throughout the day, the knights demonstrated the variety of weapons and fighting methods used in medieval skirmishes.

Other activities include fairground rides, ‘dragon charm’ sessions at Tamworth Castle, a dedicated children’s zone organized this year by Hamsterzorb who provided a land zorb and football dartboard; as well as over 26 stalls offering food, refreshments and a selection of gift items, curated by Mark Kyte of the Tamworth Lions.

Visitors took to social media throughout the day and afterwards to share their photos and praise the event:

Emma Victoria said: “Thank you, that was great.”

Karen Pegg said: “We had a fabulous day. Thank you to all participants.

Clare Louise said: “Excellent day. I will definitely go back next year.”

Joshua Harrison commented: “It was excellent, loved being back here, good to see the full crowd back after a tough few years, I still come here every year.”

The free annual St George’s Day Festival is one of the highlights of Tamworth’s impressive calendar of outdoor events organized by Tamworth Borough Council’s Arts & Events team.

Andrew Barratt, chief executive of Tamworth Borough Council, said: “We have been delighted to be able to bring back the long-awaited St George’s Festival, which has proven to always be one of our most popular events.

“The Arts & Events team works hard to ensure that it continues to meet and even exceed expectations every year. It was great to see so many people enjoying the activities and entertainment offered by this beautiful dry weather.

“A big thank you to Mark Kyte of the Tamworth Lions, who organized over 26 stalls offering food, refreshments and a selection of gift items, and everyone who attended and supported the event.

“The large number of visitors is great news and will hopefully help attract more visitors to Tamworth town center in the future.

“Our next big outdoor event in the castle grounds will take place this summer with the Here and now, the best of the 80s tour planned to take over the field with a big party in the park concert. Definitely something not to miss!”

Tamworth Borough Council’s Arts and Events team are delighted to announce that a host of 1980s music stars will be performing on the Here and Now Tour, including singing sensations Belinda Carlisle, Howard Jones , Tom Bailey of the Thompson Twins, Boney M, The Fizz, Toyah and Katrina of the Waves.

Muslims and non-Muslims enjoying Ramadan festivities in Lebanon https://greenwoodacrescampground.net/muslims-and-non-muslims-enjoying-ramadan-festivities-in-lebanon/ Sun, 24 Apr 2022 05:20:00 +0000 https://greenwoodacrescampground.net/muslims-and-non-muslims-enjoying-ramadan-festivities-in-lebanon/ Muslims around the world observe Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, in their own way.

Muslims around the world observe Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, in their own way. Each community welcomes the holy month with its distinctive traditions and practices.

Ramadan begins with the rising of the crescent moon and is a time of spiritual discipline, charity, generosity and prayer.

During the day, you will find Muslims around the world fasting from dawn to dusk, refraining from eating and drinking any liquid (including water) and refraining from habits like smoking, gossiping and argue. However, the nights are the real days during Ramadan.

Across the Arab world, festivities kick off after Iftar (breaking the fast) at dusk, as neighborhoods come alive after a quiet, slow day of food hibernation.

Ramadan in Lebanon is different but more beautiful and interesting. Since 40% of the population is Christian, Lebanon is actually one of the few Arab countries where you can enjoy the festive spirit of Ramadan! But still, being able to get a decent meal during the day without prying eyes.

As the holy month comes to its midpoint, we take a look at some interesting Ramadan vibes in Lebanon, a country in Western Asia.

Musaharati (dawn awakening)

At the dawn of Ramadan, the Musaharati is a common sight in many parts of the Arab world, especially in Lebanon. A Musaharati is a drummer, also called a dawn waker, who beats his drum just before dawn to wake up Muslims for Suhoor.

Thanks to the Musaharati, people can sleep peacefully knowing that they will not miss their Suhoor meals.

He has a remarkable voice that fills the air at dawn, calling people to get up, perform Suhoor, prepare for the Fajr prayer (dawn prayer) and start a new day of Ramadan. .

The history of the Musaharati in the Hijaz goes back many centuries. It seems that its function was part of social life in Islamic times, especially in Mamluk and Ottoman times.

Non-Muslims also enjoy Ramadan!!!

In Lebanon, Ramadan, like Christmas, is also considered a national holiday. In this country, the festivities of Ramadan are appreciated by all communities and they are not reserved for Muslims only.

An annual Iftar dinner is held at the Presidential Palace attended by all community leaders and religious figures.

At Iftar dinners, you have Muslims and non-Muslims, those who fast and those who don’t, sitting next to each other. There is compromise on both sides, in the sense that the particularities of those who fast are respected, and at the same time there is tolerance for those who do not fast.

Charities, civic organizations and businesses host iftar dinners for fundraising purposes to which guests from various communities and religious faiths are invited.

Tripoli in Lebanon comes alive at night during Ramadan

Ramadan in Tripoli is truly magnificent. Tripoli takes on a new lease of life during the holy month as people come from all over the country to enjoy its famous sweets, artisanal crafts and jubilant atmosphere.

At sunset, Muslim families will enjoy Iftar with Christian neighbors and stay late in cafes to listen to Hakawati or storytellers or visit a park to watch Sufi dervishes perform their dreamlike whirlwind. “After Iftar, there’s this energy that keeps people going all night,” says Fatima Tadmoury, 29, who relishes the nocturnal spirit the Lebanese city adopts during Ramadan and Eid Al Fitr.

It is 2:15 a.m. and a Musaharati beats a drum to wake up the inhabitants of the old city of Tripoli before sahour. There is a brief sleepy silence, then the streets begin to bustle. The smell of cooking drifts through the medieval lanes as a communal slot lets passers-by know that the households share the meal.

Special Lebanese desserts for Iftar

As an essential part of Ramadan, Suhoor and Iftar meals are at the center of gatherings around the world, giving people another reason to reconnect with friends and family.

In the Arab world, especially in Lebanon, there are special dishes and sweets that are served during the holy month of Ramadan.

The following sweets and desserts are special Ramadan recipes that Lebanese people usually prepare for the Iftar meal during Ramadan.

Kellaj

Kellaj is one of the most popular desserts during Ramadan season. It is a light dough filled with Ashta cream, deep fried and soaked in syrup for a while. A pure delight!

Mafroukeh

Mafroukeh is made from a dough combining semolina flour, butter and sugar syrup. The dough is covered with a layer of Ashta and roasted nuts. Mafroukeh can be served on a plate or molded into several shapes.

Chaaybiyet

A tasteful dessert commonly prepared during Ramadan, Chaaybiyet is made of crispy layers of dough filled with Ashta. Chaaybiyet is usually shaped like a triangle and decorated with crushed pistachios and candied orange blossoms and definitely covered in sweet syrup! They can be served cold or hot.

Daoukiyeh

Daoukiyeh is one of Beirut’s most famous desserts. It was first created in the 80s by Al-Daouk confectionery, a small pastry shop in Beirut, and was named after the family’s surname.

Daoukiyeh consists of a layer of Ashta and a layer of cashew nuts between two layers of pistachio paste.

The color of the pistachios gives the Daoukiyeh its particular green color. Today, Daoukiyeh is prepared in many patisseries across the country and is served in different forms.

Qatayef

Qatayef is very commonly served during Ramadan. This pancake-like Arabic batter can be made with different fillings such as nuts and a mixture of sugar or sweet Akkawi cheese or even Ashta (a clotted cream made with rose water).

The stuffed Qatayef is then fried and dipped in sugar syrup before being served.
