The annual Persian Parade is the culmination of a year-long, community-wide effort to celebrate the rich history of Persian culture in New York City. It is coordinated by the New York Persian Parade Foundation, a non-profit cultural organization with no affiliation to any political or religious group.
The parade started at 38th Street and Madison Avenue in Manhattan, and ended with a family-friendly festival in Madison Square Park.
There was Persian food vendors, music, and dancing.
The parade took place on Sunday April 30th in Manhattan as a means to promote and introduce the rich Persian culture and its historical achievement in art, folklore, science, and the Persian civilization to the general public.
