The Asian Market

This weekend I had planned at some point to go to the Asian Market at the intersection of Tryon and Sugar Creek so I could buy a few boxes of green tea. A co-worker told me that on Saturday they were having a new year's celebration. Well then, I thought, it looks like I'll go on Saturday.

Outside they would set off a huge packet of firecrackers and guys in a dragon suit would dance around it.

Inside, the mall was packed.

They had singers.

A beauty pageant.

I stayed about 1 1/2 hours. They also featured children doing traditional dances but I didn't get any good photos of that. I did get three boxes of tea and drank green tea all weekend.
