The 7th Annual Zoroastrian Fire Jumping Event is tonight at La Plaza Cultural on the southwest corner of Avenue C and Ninth Street.
Here are details via Facebook:
Jumping over fire is a symbolic gesture to start a fresh new year. This tradition is celebrated for ringing in the Persian New Year and has been celebrated since at least 1700 BCE of the early Zoroastrian era. There will be music, dancing and snacks; wear your best fire proof pants.
The event starts at 7 p.m. The rain date is Wednesday (tomorrow!) evening.
