As you may have already heard, the Persian (Iranian and Afghani) communities celebrated our New Year this past weekend. The city was filled with gatherings and celebrations of the New Year, and I was lucky enough to attend the 17th Annual Arya Norouz Bazaar at Sheraton Hotel & Conference Centre in Richmond Hill. The event was open to the public and held from Sunday March 13 to Friday March 18, 2016.

The Persian community came together to fill up the Halls of the Sheraton with music, dancing, displays and showcases – and of course, some AMAZING TREATS. Check it out for yourself!
