The midsummer is a special day annually celebrated in many parts of Iran including in Zardui village in the city of Paveh in Kermanshah province, western Iran.

The ceremony is held at the beginning of the temperature drop when the harvest of garden products starts.

The celebrations include scarecrow handling, playing Daf (traditional Persian drum), performing local music and the Kurdish game of Halparkeh, alongside distribution of products among the participants.
