KUSA - Hundreds of people turned out at the Colorado Muslim Society in Parker Monday for a morning prayer.

Sunday night was the start of a four-day holiday commonly known as the Festival of Sacrifice.

The holiday lasts until Thursday.

The Colorado Muslim Society is located at 2071 S. Parker Rd. in Denver.

The Festival of Sacrifice (or Eid al-Adha) is the second of two Muslim holidays celebrated worldwide each year. It honors the willingness of Ibrahim to sacrifice his son, before God intervened.
