2012/2556 – The Year of the Dragon. Here are a few photos from today’s celebration on Lynn Common.
A crowd gathers by the stage, set in front of the Frederick Douglass Bandstand on the Lynn Common, for a full day’s worth of entertainment, including speeches from local pols, fashion shows, dance troupes, and live music.
Asian food was available from a variety of vendors and community organizations set up information tables around the perimeter.
Placed centrally near the stage – this represents a good harvest.
Children playing familiar games with a cultural twist (or pull in this case).
Festival volunteers start a dance session, others soon join in.
Community Recognition Awards and a raffle before the band Fanta-Z begins playing.
Zachary Say receives a check for his winning T-Shirt design representing the Year of the Dragon, presented by Harry Shnur.
