Tet Fair 2018
The American School (TAS) hosted our annual Tet Fair on Friday, February 2, 2018 from 3:00PM – 7:00PM on the middle high school campus. In a perfect mix of modern traditions, the TAS Tet Fair’s purpose was to celebrate the most important holiday in Vietnam and to maintain its Vietnamese cultural and heritage ties. This fair was opened to all parents, children and community members, and features an exciting schedule of entertainment and activities for children of all ages.
Throughout the fair were activities booths featuring traditional to he (dough figurines), xep la dua (coconut leaf folding), fishing pool, bamboo dancing and a monkey bridge balancing game. There was also statue painting, sand art, clay crafts and calligraphy. The focus of the event was the talent show and a fashion parade by MSHS students. Every guest had a chance to win a lucky yellow apricot blossom as well as other their TAS prizes!
This was a wonderful opportunity for families and children to participate in some of the most authentic Vietnamese cultural events in a safe and fun environment right in District 2!
