Tet in Seattle

It’s almost time for Tet in Seattle!  This year’s Vietnamese New Year Celebration will be held on the 16th and 17th of February at the Seattle Center.

Aside from animated, captivating performances (and Food!) that highlight and celebrate Vietnam and Vietnamese Americans culture,  the festivities will also feature a display of the best photographs from EXPOSED: Little Saigon 2012 and a Friends of Little Saigon information booth.
