Held at the Orange County Fairgrounds, the Merhegan festival is what you would expect at most cultural festivals. Lots of food vendors. A products and services area where businesses extend their outreach programs. And of course entertainment. All were in abundance.
Dori and her thing for men in uniform. (10/14/07)
Last year we went when the festival first opened (to avoid big crowds). This year, at the request of some of our co-workers, we went later in the day, so that we could see it when it was full. Indeed, it was much more crowded this year than last.
I work with two of the people here. (10/14/07)
We had some great food from Bahar restaurant. We both ordered the boneless chicken kabob, served with Persian-style rice and a roasted tomato. It was great (as Persian food most always is).
James is about to sink his teech into his strawberry dulce de leche crepe. (10/14/07)
Afterward we stopped at the crepe booth where Dori and I each got a desert (I got strawberries with dulce de leche). I know, not exactly a Persian dessert, but still good! It was a nice way to cap off the day.
