In Ramadan, municipalities set up tents where the poor can break their fasts for free. Each day the meals are supplied by various firms and sponsors and people wait in queues for hours to get to eat something.

Each night, there are theatre shows, concerts and cultural activities after the meal, says a local newspaper. here are some pictures
