In shacks distributed by the Sidon Municipality, chocolatiers and other pastry-makers peddled their wares. Ahead of Eid al-Fitr, Sidon's souks have transformed into a center of movement day and especially night, with shoppers lured by holiday discounts rejuvenating the city's sluggish economy.Dahr al-Mir Square near the Great Omari Mosque in Old Sidon was transformed into an area for the production of Eid desserts where the scent of maamoul mixed with the smell of Eid sweets.In line with that duty, the Sidon Municipality and the Muslims Scouts in the south organized the Traditional Eid Dessert Festival in the square of Dahr al-Mir, which drew visitors and sellers until dawn.Many dessert shops have stopped manufacturing Al-Asha, but it is still made in Sidon's Old City because of its connection with the city's heritage.The festival organizers also managed to make the biggest date maamoul in Sidon, attracting local and outside visitors alike.
