Activities for this year will feature the traditional lion dance, Taiko, kung Fu demonstrations, traditional Chinese dances, Chinese yo-yo demonstrations and Chinese musical performances. “Chinatown” offers an assortment of Asian-themed merchants and a “Taste of China” to whet your appetite from various food vendors. Cultural performances will take place on the Main Stage; in the “Teahouse” you can drink a cup of hot tea, relax and eat snacks while enjoying Chinese instrument performance, Tai Chi and many other traditional demonstrations.
