For those of us who are of Asian descent, Asian Pacific Heritage Month should remind us how important it is to reflect on our history and to get involved in our community. For others who are of other ethnicities, festivities and events during this month provide opportunities to learn about our history and culture.
A huge event in the NYC area that celebrates our culture is the CAPA Festival. Throughout the day, there will be loads of entertainmentt to highlight Asian Pacific Culture. These things include Martial Arts demonstrations, Arts & Crafts tables, a Children’s Program, a Theme Exhibit, a Performance Stage, a Mini-Film Festival.
