Free Family Vacation

It  looks like there is some kind of event being planned.   Everyone is excited, anticipating the start of the festivities.  The children can't wait to make a Chinese yo-yo, origami doll or flower lei. Every mouth is watering at the smell of all the different foods being prepared for the event. People have gathered from many Asian countries and Pacific islands to share their culture through cooking and calligraphy demonstrations, crafts, and even a Vietnamese Lion Dance! There is lots of music, laughter, and fun. The whole family is having a great time.  Wait!
