On March 21, 2017, the Long Beach City Council joined Councilwoman Suzie Price in celebrating the Persian New Year (Norooz) by opening the City Council meeting with a formal presentation on Norooz. Iranian-Persian American Association of Greater Long Beach (IPAA) proudly took part in organizing  this momentous event. Delicious pastries, cookies and tea were served during the reception at the Long Beach City Hall Lobby. IPAA also organized the Chaharshanbeh Suri celebration in Long Beach on March 14, where people partook in the tradition of  jumping over bonfires. The celebration included a live performance by Mr. Sohrab Roushan, as well as dancing to blissful music.
