San Diego Tet Festival:Feb 20-22nd

Tết Nguyên Đán, or simply known as Tet, is the most important holiday in Vietnam and celebrates the beginning of a new year.  San Diego has its own population of 33K+ Vietnamese in the area of which over 20K people frequent this festival.  Located at the Mira Mesa Community Park it is open to the public and free. A well coordinated event with plenty of port-a-pottys, washing stations, tables, and coordinators available.

I took a lot of pictures hoping you will enjoy them. As this was my first Vietnamese event I wasn't sure what to expect. Of course I had the opportunity to hear the language, smell the foods, and enjoy some of the culture. A range of food and product vendors were lined neatly in rows. Of particular interest was the hand crafted bracelets.

There is plenty to do for young people. Between the Vietnamese cultural presentations, music, and building displays was also a small fair of games and rides. This was again all free making it a great event for people to bring their families and learn a little something about the culture of Vietnam. Come and get a picture of yourself with a great backdrop.
