Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month continues through May, and what better way to celebrate than by attending CelebrAsian 2022? The annual event showcasing AAPI cultures returns this Friday and Saturday to Western Gateway Park. Explore more than a dozen Asian Villages, where you can sample authentic cuisine, view educational exhibits and see live cultural performances.

A few highlights: a culinary tent featuring chefs whipping up traditional dishes, a K-pop dance group performance, and robotics demos from teams from First Tech Challenge, a robotics program and competition for middle and high school students to design, build and operate their own robots.
