Arts Midwest is excited to participate in A Passage to China, on Saturday, May 17, 2008, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Center Court of Southdale Mall in Edina, MN. A Passage to China is presented by The Chinese Heritage Foundation, in collaboration with China Insight. This family-oriented event will feature interactive games/activities from different regions of China, and will transport visitors aloft with sights and sounds of authentic music and dance, and aromas of regional cuisine.
The inaugural event, planned in celebration of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month as declared by the U.S. Congress, offers ‘armchair’ travelers a wonderful opportunity to journey through exciting aspects of Chinese culture, history and geography. At each booth participants will be treated to fun encounters such as having their names translated into Chinese, having their fortunes told, making harmonicas, or meeting with a historical figure. All events are free and open to the public.
