Farragut Fridays Painting in the Park, 2017

Friday, June 2, 2017

SQCC participated for the second time at Farragut Fridays, a free all-day, summer event hosted by the Golden Triangle BID. Many people visited SQCC’s booth to play an Omani spice game and paint majmars.

Visitors painted a traditional Omani majmar, or frankincense burner. SQCC provided paint, brushes, patterns, and replica majmars for visitors to paint traditional designs or make up new patterns. SQCC also provided a table of Omani spices such as cloves, cinnamon, dried limes and turmeric. Visitors had the opportunity to touch and smell the spices to determine what they were before checking their answers against an answer sheet. They also smelled the Omani Frankincense.

You can view pictures from the event here.
