Editor’s Note: Each year, over a hundred thousand people gather at two locations in Fresno to celebrate Hmong New Year, a multi-day festival that features music performances, traditional Hmong clothing, dancing and performances, courtship games, and authentic food. The kNOw visited the festivities at The Fresno Fairgrounds and asked young people why they were celebrating the Hmong New Year and what they thought about the celebration.
