ANNUAL EVENT SHOWCASES DISTINCTIVE ASIAN CULTURES

BY: Karon Warren

On March 9 at Lenox Square, the Who’s Who in Asian American Communities foundation invites locals to Asian SpringFest, a yearly event celebrating the most populous continent’s many ethnicities.

Throughout the day, Chinese, Filipino, Indian, Vietnamese, Korean, Japanese and other Asian cultures will be highlighted with a variety of events, including dance, song, instrumental performances and educational displays of arts such as calligraphy and origami. In addition, a fashion show will feature a colorful and exquisite array of rarely displayed Asian costumes.

Also, several local Asian leaders will share stories with festival attendees, providing a further glimpse into the lives of these Far Eastern countries. Free and open to the public, Asian SpringFest serves a dual purpose for the WWAAC: to increase business with the Asian community abroad and here in Atlanta, as well as building awareness of Asian cultures and their contributions to mainstream America.
