Photo essay: 13-Bedar in Sydney

I am enclosing 40 photos from sizdah-bedar in Parramatta Park (Parramatta, a suburb of Sydney), Australia. The event took place precisely on the 13th of Farvardin (Thursday, April 1), not the nearest Saturday or Sunday, from 1:00--6:00 in the afternoon.

I was pleasantly surprised by the turnout on a working day. It is the first time in my personal experience of twenty plus years living outside of Iran that this festivity was observed on a weekday with such an impressive turnout.
