PICTORIAL: Celebrating Asian Pacific American Heritage Month!

API Heritage Month brought out the crowds to the Seattle Center on Sunday, where celebrants of all ages were entertained by drumming, music, dance, games, and a lively hum bow eating contest.


Setting aside work, politics, and business, representatives from across the community made time to come together for fun and games at the annual Asian and Pacific Islander Heritage Month activities at the Seattle Center on Sunday. Here, “The Mayor” (Ed Murray), “The News Anchor” (King 5’s Lori Matsukawa), “The Chairman” (Tomio Moriguchi of Uwajimaya), “The Uncle” (community activist Bob Santos), and “The Publisher” (Assunta Ng) participate in a hum bow eating contest. And the winner is…Tomio Moriguchi! (Photo by George Liu/NWAW)
