For so many years, I’ve seen pictures and videos from 4th of July weekend festival at Wat Lao Buddhavong in VA. This year I finally had a chance to witness the festival first hand. I was little disappointed there aren’t that many folks attending this event like in past years. Maybe due to the heat wave on that weekend and other internal temple issues that kept the local away this year.
Over all I had an awesome trip, I got to meet some relatives whom I haven’t seen since I left Laos.
Here are some of the artists/performers I saw at the temple concerts.
this guy does it all... he sing.. he even make papaya salad for you..
I'm not sure his papaya salad is as good as his singing..
even he is singing.. still manage to pose for the lady
this gal jumped on stage and dance with Mike.. one of the event staff politely asked her to leave the stage..
a singer from Laos, Latsamy
I told my buddies to walk up to the stage and I'll take pictures for them. Latsamy must of heard us talking... while she was still singing, she walks toward us and took pictures with my buddies... tips were flying left and right hahahah
I forgot this lady name.. Guess who's sitting up in the front?? That's Nye and her families.. I didn't know til afterward
