JUMP OVER THE BONFIRE AT THE BERKLEY PERSIAN NEW YEAR FESTIVAL!

Berkeley, CA – Jump over a bonfire for “Chahr-Shanbeh Souri” on Tuesday, March 18, 2014, at Persian Center, 2029 Durant Avenue in Berkeley from 6-10pm to shake off the darkness of winter and welcome the lightness of spring.

A Persian ritual passed down since ancient Zoroastrian times, the Persian New Year Festival, called Chahar-Shanbeh Souri, literally means ‘Eve of Wednesday” because the fire festival is held on the last Tuesday of winter, just before the Vernal Equinox or first moment of spring.
