Asian Pacific American Heritage Organization – Asian Fest 2013
The Asian Pacific American Heritage Organization (APAHO) will present its 22nd Annual Asian Fest Saturday, May 11 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Thomas Nelson Community College’s (TNCC) Hampton campus. The event is free and open to the public.
Hosted this year by Cambodian Americans with guest speaker His Excellency Hem Heng, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Royal Embassy of Cambodia, the festival aims to promote a greater understanding of Asian communities and cultures. Attendees can enjoy cuisine, entertainment, arts, crafts and cultural displays from each of the representative countries. The celebration will also give Hampton Roads students of Asian heritage an opportunity to receive a scholarship.
Among Asian Pacific Heritage Month observances nationwide that recognize the contributions of Asian Pacific Americans, the event is sponsored by APAHO, TNCC Cultural Affairs, SunTrust Bank, SunTrust Mortgage, Sam’s Club and several Asian associations in the region.
There will be events for all ages, including special activities for children, so bring out the whole family to enjoy Asian Fest 2013!

Happy 70th Birthday to the great Christopher Walken! In celebration our amazing librarian at The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, Jeremy Megraw, wrote an awesome blog about Walken. Jeremy also uncovered some rarely seen photos of a VERY YOUNG Walken from The Library’s incredible Billy Rose Theatre Collection. The photo above is from Ronnie Walken’s (his birth name) 1955 acting resume. Our friends at Gothamist also shared some of these photos as well as some that they found as well…
Look at that young Christopher Walken!
