IRVINE, CA - October 13, 2008 - The Network of Iranian-American Professionals of Orange County (NIPOC) on behalf of the Southern California based Persian Community wishes to thank all the organizations, sponsors, and the public for a very successful Mehregan. The annual Persian Harvest Festival of Autumn (Mehregan 2008) was held on October 11-12, 2008 at the Orange County Fair & Event Center in Costa Mesa, CA.

Thousands of people enjoyed the 13th annual event celebrating Persian culture with music, dance, artwork, crafts, traditional Persian cuisine, traditional tea house, and costumes. The festival represents Iranian Americans' interest in their heritage and commitment to share that heritage with the community.

Mehregan (pronounced 'meh-re-gahn'), is a celebration of nature honoring the ancient Persian Goddess Mehr, the spirit of LOVE, KNOWLEDGE and COMMITMENT.

This year s event was dedicated to World Peace. We were joined by a number of peace loving organizations in the community to honor those who have worked tirelessly to promote peace in the world.

We wish to give our greatest gratitude to hundreds of volunteers who dedicate their time, energy and talents to bring Orange County the sights, sounds and tastes of ancient Persia and a flavor of modern Iran.

Without their unconditional dedication such event would not have been possible Looking forward to see you at Mehregan 2009!
