Summit Mayor Nora Radest joined Lynn Robertson-Hotz, Andrea Cruise and Ann-Marie Aymer at the Summit Free Public Library to help ring in the Year of the Pig, enjoying a colorful and festive Culture Fair which concluded a week's worth of activities celebrating Chinese New Year.

The Culture Fair included decorated Children’s and Teen areas, a perfomance of the Lion Dance, a volunteer-led opportunity for attendees to try their hands at Chinese calligraphy, multiple arts and crafts stations as well as games where 'winners' were awarded prizes, many of which celebrated the Year of the Pig.

Spring rolls, cookies, and other Chinese delicacies as well as tea and lemonade were served.

Ann-Marie Aymer, Head of Youth Services, was impressed by the big turnout, with close to 200 attending throughout the afternoon. “I am pleased not only with the turnout, but with the success of all the activities that took place throughout the week, including Chinese food demonstrations, calligraphy lessons, and Peking Opera face painting and movie night. It was wonderful to see the community turn out and participate in such a notable cultural event.”
