White tents stretched across the Park Blocks this Saturday, filling the space between Shattuck Hall and the Millar Library with a multitude of sights, scents and sounds from Iran. On a brightly decorated stage, commendations were given to recognize commitment and dedication to the local Persian community. Among those recognized were Multnomah County Commissioner Deborah Kafoury and Reed professor of political science Dr. Darius Rejali. “This is my first time at the festival,” said Kafoury, whose parents served in the Peace Corps in Iran. “It’s great to see such joy and tenderness here.”
