Congratulations Pakistan & Thank You for the Hard Work and Grace Serving as Host Nation for 2015 APCC Lunar New Year Celebration
Asia Pacific New Year Celebration 2015 was a happy success. There was plenty of food, all kinds of retail vendors, arts and crafts booths, henna and face painting, just to name a few. Tacoma Dome staff estimates approx,. 9,000 people came through the doors on that day.
A big shout out to the Pacific Northwest Pakistani community of Washington. We are all grateful for your acceptance to be this year’s host nation. The Pakistan presence at this year’s celebration was felt immediately upon arrival to the main stage area. Beautiful stage, well done, colorful, elegant and simple. The Pakastani cultural program was well organized and well received.
The Pakistani food booth manned by the owners of a Seattle based Pakistani restaurant, Garan Masala were able to feed all their performers and volunteers and still had plenty left for the general public to savor authentic Pakistani food.
Pakistan, you raised the bar. All future New Year celebrations now have a template of excellence to emulate.
Thank you for your leadership and friendship.
