Lunar Flower Fest & Tet Festival
Saturday, February 17 and Sunday, February 18, Little Saigon, 10 a.m., no cover
Most of us love the feelings we get from new beginnings. Those who celebrate the Vietnamese Lunar New Year know that the spectacle of large parading dragons, women dressed in colorful gowns and a crowd of thousands set the stage for good spirits as we welcome the Year of the Dog. The Little Saigon Lunar Flower Fest and Tet Festival kick off Saturday and includes the Lion Dance, traditional Vietnamese food, performances, carnival games and rides for kids. The celebration continues the following weekend (2/23-2/24) with the Tet Festival. 4562 Mack Road, www.gsvaac.org.
