Fiesta Asia Celebration by George Newcomb So as magical as #Fiestaasia always is, it requires a village to make it happen.  The behind the scene of any festivals is a marvel in itself,  you got to be in it to believe it.  From planning to execution,  every step requires bodies and minds  to actualize the vision. We are looking for volunteers to help us.  Whether you have every waking moment or just 4 hours to share, we welcome you to join in the #FiestaAsia Family.  Please reach out via FB or Twitter, email,  or sign up HERE for day of volunteering, we love to have you with us! info@fiestaasia.org
