Firecrackers will burst, lions will dance and drums will sound this weekend at the 2015 Tet Festival at the OC Fair & Event Center in Costa Mesa.
The three-day celebration of the Vietnamese New Year began Friday and is expected to attract more than 100,000 guests.
The festival, sponsored by the Union of the Vietnamese Student Assns. of Southern California, is in its second year at the Orange County fairgrounds. It used to be held in Garden Grove, but after political and financial issues, it was moved to Costa Mesa, said Julie Huynh, the festival’s director.
