Review of the Asian-American Festival

I would like to review the Fourth Annual Hempstead Asian-American Fesitaval held yesterday.
There were many people gathered at the stage performances, but stage process got behind schedule and delayed almost one hour.
I helped at the tea ceremony booth, which was quite popular and we got a good crowd, filled all chairs. The tea ceremony served tea four times, each time took about 30 minutes.
I didn't have a chance to taste the tea.
Since the stage schedule got delayed, I went home
to change into my stage cosutme, and change my make-up and hair style.
It started to rain a bit after 3:00 pm and some audience went home before I went on stage.
I performed after Iaido (Samurai Sword), led by Ms. Deborah who offers a class at Resobox.
Their performance was very sharp and I liked it.
Ms. Deborah helped me by acting as announcer for my performance.
I appreciated her help very much.
Here are some photos from yesterday's event.
