Third Anniversary Celebration - 04-08 - Zarifa's Events


April 2008 Third Anniversary Pictures

April 19, 2008 An unusual warming trend brought uncharacteristic high temperatures this April, right up until Saturday. The temps plummeted into the 40's and there were even hail and snowstorms!

Fortunately this didn't dampen the spirits at the Third Anniversary Celebration of Zarifa's Touch of Egypt, held inside at the store and studio at 914 SW 6th Street in Grants Pass. While Mother Nature was partying outside, the dancers and customers were celebrating the coming of Spring inside!

Zarifa opened the doors of Zarifa's Touch of Egypt on April 16, 2005, occupying the small 900 square foot suite with her first inventory of belly dance costume and Egyptian decór. By January 2006, her online store was fully developed and live. Celebrating three years of business selling belly dance costume, metaphysical supplies, and Egyptian decór, the celebration featured live drumming, dancing, and gift giveaways every half hour from 2 - 5 PM.
