Tết Festival 2012

Chúc mừng bạn năm mới đầy hạnh phúc, niềm vui và phước lành! I wish you all a happy, joyous and blessed New Year!

What’s a New Year without the Tết Festival?  I don’t really know the answer to that actually.  As long as I have remembered, the Bolsa Tết Festival has been a large part of the celebration of the New Year here in Little Saigon. It’s complete with dragon/lion dances (Múa Lân), Áo Dài fashion shows, fan dances and my favorite part, a gazillion food booths! (Oh, here come the Bánh Chưng and the Chả  Giò again!)

The fun and festivities are scheduled begin this Friday January 27th at 3:00 P.M.  and lasts all the way to Sunday night at 10:00 P.M.  Pray for no rain.  We wouldn’t want the the firecrackers to get soggy!  Tickets are $5.  Discounted tickets available at $4 for kids. Bring the babies.  Kids under 4 feet are free!

Let’s thank the dedicated youth of the Union of Vietnamese Student Associations, or UVSA for putting this festival together. Now allow me to leave you with a clip of a New Year celebration from last year, the Múa Lân!
