The Bangladesh Embassy in Washington DC on Saturday celebrated the Bangla Nabo Barsho with much enthusiasm and fanfare.

It also organised an “Open House” programme as part of the “Passport DC’s Embassy Tour 2023”.

To celebrate the Bangla Nabo Barsho, a "Mongal Shobhajatra" (a rally of well-being) was brought out from Bangabandhu Auditorium of the embassy and ended it on the Chancery premises after parading the nearby streets of the US capital.

Officials of the US Government and State Department also attended in the joyful event.

The key attraction of the programme was a spectacular cultural show. Later, artistes of “Ektara”, a Bangladeshi folk cultural organisation based in greater Washington Metro Area, and “Aparajeyo Bangla” another Bangladeshi cultural group, enthralled the audience by singing folk and patriotic songs.

Around 10,000 enthusiastic foreigners and local residents visited Bangladesh Embassy to enjoy the daylong programme.

Traditional Bangladeshi foods were also displayed and served for the guests.

A number of stalls showcasing Bangladesh's traditional handicrafts, including Jamdani and Tangail saree, were set up at Bangabandhu Auditorium.

First Secretary (Passport and Visa Wing) Muhammad Abdul Hye Milton conducted the programme while Counsellor (Political-III) Shamima Yeasmin Smrite was in its overall coordination.
