New York Metro - Sizdah Bedar Picnic

13-sizdeh-bedarSunday April 4, 2010
Bear Mountain State Park,  Dawn to Dusk

Rain or shine, with or without rainbow, wind or no wind, no excuses whatsoever:

The Iranian-American Community of Greater New York, following its rich tradition of celebrating the last day of Nowruz Holidays, will once again congregate by the hundreds at Bear Mountain State Park to enjoy Sizdah Bedar picnic.

Specifically, the Horseshoe Courtyard and the Hillside between this open Building and the Lakefront at the Park is the location where many families would arrive as early as 8:00 am to secure the site and as many picnic tables for this event, since there is no prior reservation and it is on a first-come, first-served basis.

13-RahniPlease remain cognizant of the Park rules and regulations below, including parking fees per car and a probable nominal fee to cover the garbage pickup and gratuities.

Please broadly circulate this open invitation to all those interested in joining us at the Event–potluck lunch, games, walks, etc.

Thanks and Cheers, Davood Rahni

Rules: No electric generators, no driving up into the courtyard driveway for off-loading, no Sabzeh (green) throwing into the lake or area; and, clean, collect and place  garbage in proper containers.
