Festival of Fire 2014
The Iranian Association is organizing a Fire Festival in conjunction with the spring equinox. In the Persian mythology, this time of year is nature’s rebirth, which coincides with a new year. An important part of a new year is the Festival of Fire, a centuries old tradition that takes place on the last Tuesday evening of the Persian year. People dance, sing and jump over bonfires to welcome the new year.
A speech is delivered by Melody (Iranian-Swedish artist) and music is performed by DJ Said. Coffee, tea and refreshments for all, traditional painted eggs and candy for the children.
