Each April, Bahá’ís around the world celebrate, the Festival of Ridván, to commemorate the public announcement in 1863 by the prophet-founder of the Bahá’í Faith, Bahá’u’lláh, of His mission to unite mankind and to establish peace on earth. He said, “the well-being of mankind, its peace and security, are unattainable unless and until its unity is firmly established.”
Arlington Bahá’ís celebrated on April 21, in Barton Park, between the trees donated to Arlington County for the Bicentennial of the birth of Bahá’u’lláh, and indoors on May 2, when poor weather cancelled another park celebration. The highlights of each event were programs for and by the community’s children.
