Seattle International Children's Festival
In the spring of 2011, students representing the Newport High School Chinese Club and Seattle Chongqing Sister-City Association organized and ran a Chinese crafts booth at the Seattle International Children’s Festival on May 14th, 2011. In the booth, children had the opportunity to experience the Chinese culture by learning Chinese calligraphy and making their own colorful paper lanterns. With our traditional Chinese music adding to the Chinese atmosphere, our booth seemed to be the most popular! Running the booth gave us the opportunity to share our enthusiasm and expose children to the amazing Chinese culture.
