On May 5, over 3,000 people visited Seattle Center to celebrate national API Heritage Month. They were met with five hours of programing, including performances from the Filipino Youth Activities Drill Team, Seattle Chinese Community Girls Drill Team, the Massive Monkees, and other cultural groups.

The event also featured an art contest for Asian and Pacific American youth, a showcase of artists from all around Washington, and a selection of community booths. (end)
