On Saturday January 25th, Michelle Steel, Chairwoman of the Orange County Board of Supervisors, will be joining Orange County’s Vietnamese community in celebration at the annual OC Tet Festival in Mile Square Park. The Tet Festival celebrates the beginning of the lunar new year and is by far the most important holiday in the Vietnamese community.
“The Vietnamese community of Orange County has been a vital and integral part of enriching Orange County,” said Chairwoman Michelle Steel. “I am honored to be able to attend and be a part of such a special day for the Vietnamese residents of this great county. I wish everyone a Chúc Mừng Năm Mới and I look forward to seeing you all there.”
Each Lunar New Year is represented by one the twelve Zodiac animals, this year being the Year of the Rat, which represents prosperity, optimism and good luck. This year’s events will include a parade, a firecracker lighting ceremony, Vietnamese cultural performances, carnival rides and delicious Vietnamese food.
