Muslims mark end of Ramadan in Rochester

ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- Local Muslims met Monday at University Center Rochester for their annual celebration to mark the end of Ramadan.

Families dressed up for the occasion and observed traditional prayers.

The gathering marks an end of a month of fasting from sunrise to sunset. Those who take part in the religious experience try to better themselves during their time of fasting.

Muslims use a lunar calendar and moon-sighting to determine when they will break their fast.
