Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash.- Saturday, the Richland Public Library had a taste of the east. It was the 4th annual Asian Awareness Month Arts and Cultural Exhibition.

The library was filled with Asian artwork, food and performances. People of all ages performed traditional dances and songs. Mayor John Fox was in a attendance as well as representatives from the Taipei Economic and Cultural office in Seattle.

"We come from all over the world, but to get today, we come under the same roof to celebrate our love of our own culture, our love of the arts and of course love for the food," said Yichien Cooper the Guest Coordinator of the exhibition.

The Richland Library and the Tri-Cities Chinese American Association look to cosponsor this event celebrating the zodiac every year.
