VIDEO: Celebrating Tết at West Seattle’s Vietnamese Cultural Center

Lunar New Year festivities continue, here and around the world. This afternoon, a lively lion dance by Vovinam Burien was the highlight of this year’s Tết celebration at the Vietnamese Cultural Center of West Seattle.

The Tết celebration here also included flag-raising, with veterans of the South Vietnamese military:

If you haven’t visited the Vietnamese Cultural Center, it’s usually open to the public noon-3 pm Saturdays.

      Yes, we are across from the Home Depot.  Many have driven past and never knew either!  Hope you can visit sometime.
