Celebrated to welcome the arrival of spring, Novruz is one of the most beloved and colorful holidays in Azerbaijan. Meaning "new day" in Persian, Novruz marks the beginning of the year for people in Azerbaijan, Iran, Tajikistan, Afghanistan and other common cultural heritage countries. Novruz has been celebrated for at least 3,000 years and is rooted in the ancient traditions of the Zoroastrian belief system. On February 23, 2010 United Nations General Assembly recognized March 21 as International Day of Novruz.

Glenview Mansion is an elegant home included on the National Register of Historic Places because of its 1926 architecture and formal gardens. Built to entertain, the venue is the icon of the 153-acre Rockville Civic Center Park in Maryland. There are 2 playgrounds with play equipment and 4 tennis courts with rally wall for outdoor activities, as well as large parking lots.
