Hing Hay Park is the premier gathering space in the Chinatown-International District. Hing Hay literally means “pleasurable gatherings.” On Saturday, September 5 from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m., the community is invited to celebrate Hing Hay Park at 423 Maynard Ave. S. before construction begins for the park expansion in the fall.
The celebration marks the upcoming construction of the Hing Hay Park expansion and the closing weekend of the Bruce Lee Year 1 exhibit at the Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience (The Wing), which will be open until 8 p.m. that night. The celebration starts with plenty of activities for families to enjoy. The event features displays of the new Hing Hay Park expansion, historic photographs of the park, children’s activities including paper lantern making, coloring, face painting and dragon hand tattoos, table tennis and chess. All will be treated to a Bruce Lee movie entitled “Enter the Dragon “ at dusk (approximately 8:30 p.m.). [Read more…]
