Asian Festival In Dallas

It was a very pleasant weather today.  I went with my girl friends to the Asian Festival held in Downtown Dallas, Texas.  This is the 23rd year that the Asian Pacific Americans gather in a festival bigger than ever highlighting the Asian cultural performances, authentic Asian cuisine, and products.

My friend and her husband, who live just a mile from my house, picked me up 9:15 this morning.  We took the DART (Dallas Area Rapid Transit) train.  It was my very first time to be in Downtown Dallas and riding the DART train since I got here in Texas.

One of the attractions in the festival was the Lion Dance.  I haven’t seen one until today.  It was pretty nice.

I had a great time with the my friends at the festival.  The performances were beautiful.  It’s great to be out and about sometimes especially if you’re witnessing a very special event.

Because we had a DART all-day pass, we took the train again going home.  It was unusual to me how the train ride going home was backwards.  I was kinda feeling sick.  When I got home, I rubbed some Efficascent Oil on my tummy and I fell asleep immediately on the couch.

  1. I miss going to festivals. Festivals locally are often too crowded whilst festivals out of town are usually too far away. One day, I will make sure to attend at least one festival that is out of town. This looks so fun, not the kind of festivals here in the PH but still fun.

  2. Oh sis i can’t wait here too we have the festival on the weekend! I know you really had a great time. Seeing other pepz and great foods huh!

  3. Oh how nice that Dallas has this Asian Festival. All Asians in there must be honored. My inlaws are living in there by the way but never had a chance come visit them.

    1. Hi mare, six hours travel time from ours to San Antonio. Pero kita-kita tayo…when is your trip here? Let me know mare. 😀
