The Asian Pacific Heritage Festival was held on Saturday, May 3, 2015 on the College of Marin Kentfield campus, sponsored by the Asian American Alliance of Marin (AAAM), Marin Chinese Cultural Association (MCCA), College of Marin, Dominican University of California, and Bank of Marin. The MCCA Lion Dance Team opened the ceremony with festive drumming and exquisite dances, followed by the graceful MCCA Tai Chi demonstration lead by Sifu Fritz and Simu Elaine Wong, the colorful AAAM Korean Drumming Group, expert aikido martial art by Bay Marin Aikido (www.baymarinaikido.com), and energetic martial art demonstrations by 10,000 Victories (www.10000victories.com). The Festival included a "Comfort Women" exhibit and short speeches by Dominican University students against the atrocities of sex slaves during WWII. The weather was perfect and the Korean lunch was enjoyed by all.
