Lunar New Year Festival Planned at SWOSU

A Lunar New Year Festival is planned Thursday, February 22, at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford.

The Asian American Student Association (AASA) is hosting the festival for the first time.  It is one of the most important traditional holidays for some East Asian countries since it marks the beginning of the New Year in the Lunar calendar.  

The AASA invites area residents to participate in the activities that start at 6 p.m. in the Memorial Student Center. Otoniel Soza, graduate assistant in the SWOSU Multi-Cultural Outreach Office, said AASA members are preparing cultural activities, live performances, games and more. Admission is free.

There will be traditional foods and drinks on sale for a reasonable price.
