delaware events: Delaware's Own Chinese Festival Coming to Hockessin - 08/10/16 06:10 AM

I am sure it will be a great event--I have been going for at least 10 years, dating back to pre-air conditioning in this re-purposed school. It has been quite a few years since the Chinese American Community Center cooled off, and hopefully the singers, dancers, instrumentalists, yo-yo and martial arts performers will be at their best. The costumes are always beautiful and the small children doing folk dances are amazing.
