First of all, let us just say that the cannons have blanks in them, they're not real shells.

Second of all, it's Ramadan! The cannon has become one of the Ramadan symbols! The reason why the canon is fired is that it was an easy way to let people know that it's time to break your fast. This was before alarms, megaphones, smartphones, and people snap-chatting, "EAT ALL THE FOODS!".

Now it's become a tradition!
