Fired up to start a new year at La Plaza

The 9th Annual Zoroastrian Fire Jumping Event took place this evening at La Plaza Cultural on Ninth Street at Avenue C... EVG reader Cheyenne shared these photos...

Per tonight's invite:

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.

... and by most accounts there was a nice turnout... (perhaps due to the new J/Z stop on the corner?)

"(perhaps due to the new J/Z stop on the corner?)"

Should have took a poll, shady.

This was such a good event for a chilly evening. Thanks to the organizers for making this available for the neighborhood, and thanks to EV Grieve for spreading the word.
