The 15th Annual Persian Festival of Autumn (Mehregan 2011) was held Saturday and Sunday, October 1 - 2, 2011 at the Lakeside Lagoon Park in Irvine, California. Since 1994, volunteers from several organizations in Southern California have gathered annually to create an extraordinary outdoor family event that includes an array of activities such as arts & crafts, music, poetry, live performances, dance, children’s activities and ethnic food. The number of participants has grown steadily over the years to more than 20,000 attendees >>>...

I love these timeless, seasonal celebrations, i.e.  Nowruz, Mehregan, Yalda,etc.

Hoping for a day when we can get rid of 'jashne-taklif", or other religious stuff.
