Celebrate spring in the City with the 12th annual Persian Parade down Madison Avenue. Timed to coincide with the ancient holiday of Nowruz—that is, the Persian New Year and the start of spring—the colorful procession includes floats, music and traditional costumes. It ends with a festival of music and dance in Madison Square Park, where all are encouraged to participate. For more details, visit the Persian Parade's official website.
