2023 CANWA Chinese New Year Gala

Jan. 22, 2023

What a successful Chinese New Year's Gala organized and presented by The Chinese Association of Northwest Arkansas! When you are having fun, time flies! We had a lot of fun indeed, enjoyed the delicious Chinese food, relished the joyment of performing art, met new friends, indulged in the moment with old friends. What a glorious night! Thanks to all the audiences and supporters! Thanks to all the people who performed on the stage or worked behind the scenes! A lot of people had spent a lot of time and effort to make this happen. We really appreciate their contributions! Special thanks to the young art performers who brought us the great joyful night! Let's meet next year. Wish everyone have a great and safe year ahead!!!
