Khimeh Shabbazi Nowruzi (Puppet Show) is about a woman named Nomazeh Bahar, who waits for Uncle Nowruz every year. Each year she tries to stay awake so she can see him but she always fails. When Uncle Nowruz finally arrives, Nomazeh Bahar is asleep so instead of waking her up, he puts a flower in her hair and leaves. She and other traditional puppets are going to show children how Iranians celebrate Nowruz with different ceremonies like Khooneh Tekooni, Ab pashi, Koozeh Shekastan, Chaharshanbeh Soori, Ghashogh zani, and Haft Sin.

The puppet show is for children and families.
