Two weeks ago we brought in the Lao New Year at Wat Mixay in Seattle, Washington. The weather was great and everyone was full of excitement. Our music students had the honor of playing during the ceremonies and a few of our Kinnaly dads led the parade. Several of our girls were selected and participated in Nang Sangkhan (might we say they looked amazing in their traditional Lao outfits) and our very own Malee Phavong (advanced dance student) was announced 2016 Miss Nang Sangkhan! We had a booth set up selling Thai Ice Tea, Khanom Khok (coconut rice dumpling dessert), and hot/ice coffee -- we completely sold out so THANK YOU to everyone who purchased from us!
We brought in the New Year with so much positivity surrounded by such an amazing community. We look forward to a fantastic year with you all! <3
