The field of U.S. Bank Stadium was packed Tuesday morning with nearly 30,000 people gathered to celebrate the Muslim holiday Eid Al-Adha, in what event organizers called "Super Eid."
The holiday has been celebrated in Minnesota for decades, but this marked the first time a celebration has been held in the massive sports venue.
Prayer rugs were laid out along yard lines and into the end zone for two morning prayers. Those were followed by a carnival in Commons Park.
Traditionally, Eid Al-Adha calls for the sacrifice of an animal. But the only animals at the event were in the carnival's petting farm — there to entertain the children, and adults, too!
