Asian Fest

Asian Fest

Lions and Taiko drums helped welcome the Chinese “Year of the Dog” at the exciting “Asian Fest” at Queens’ MarketPlace on Friday, February 2. The event was marked by the high energy of vibrant Lion Dancers and driving rhythms of drums from around the world. And as they do every year, revelers had their lycee (red envelope) ready with “lettuce” to feed the Lion and ensure good health and fortune in 2018. More than Chinese New Year, Asian Fest brought together the fun and fascinating Far East traditions that came to Hawai`i and are still inspiring residents and visitors from everywhere.
