PICTORIAL: Welcoming the Year of the Horse!

Northwest Asian Weekly hosted the annual Children’s Parade Contest, featuring dozens of children in festive costumes — from the traditional Korean dress Hanbok to handmade horse costumes. Calligraphy, face painting booths, and other delights surrounded the park and the neighborhood. The whole Chinatown-International District was transformed into a giant, remarkable Lunar New Year festival.

Although the brief rain drew some people to the nearest shelters, it did nothing to diminish the spirit of the Lunar New Year celebration. (Photo by Annisa Amalia)
