Navruz 2015 a Rousing Success!

emiko_and_ilseOur 2015 Navruz celebration was a jam-packed, sold-out evening of fun, food, and festivities! Katta rahmat to everyone who attended and to everyone who volunteered at this year’s event!

Over 400 people enjoyed an amazing Uzbek meal of plov, somsa, naan, bo’gir’soq, salads, and drinks prepared by STSCA Board members and volunteers. Fruit and dessert were provided by attendees.

Highlights of the evening included honoring the Year of the Elder in Uzbekistan, performances by the Mystic Rose folkdance group, and our ever-popular fashion show, featuring traditional Central Asian clothing. Attendees who stayed until the end were also treated to a “diskoteka” of popular Uzbek and Central Asian tunes, with many young children dancing up on the stage.
