Happy Asian Pacific Heritage Month!

Last Saturday at the Maud Marks Library, we had a BLAST!!!  It was time for our annual Asian Pacific Heritage Festival.  We kicked off the day with bonsai trees, a diayas craft, and Vietnamese music.  We also had a Japanese Tea Ceremony, belly dancing, a Rangoli demonstration, lei making, Japanese AND Chinese calligraphy, origami, and of course, lots of food!  The highlight of the day was a Vietnamese lion dance complete with silliness.  A great time was had by all.  Click here to see more photos.
