Experience a martial arts demonstration and a traditional lion dance, sample Asian cuisine and play games at the Year of the Snake Celebration from 3-5:30 p.m. Feb. 10.

The family-friendly event is presented by the Issaquah Highlands’ Asian community. The celebration at Grand Ridge Elementary School, 1739 N.E. Park Drive, is free and open to the public.

Other highlights on the schedule include Chinese folk dancing and a children’s parade.

Though the event is set on the Chinese New Year, organizers plan to include New Year and spring traditions from throughout Asia, including Korea, Japan, Vietnam and the Philippines.

The inaugural celebration last year attracted more than 400 people from Issaquah, Sammamish and other Eastside communities.
