Asian Pacific Festival

Emcee for the event, Kieshana Miles, during the Central Texas Asian Pacific Festival at the Killeen Community Center on Saturday.

Casting aside their worries about the weekend weather, more than 5,000 people flocked to the new, larger site of the Central Texas Asian Pacific Festival on Saturday to share in a unique part of Killeen’s culture and traditions.

Asian, United States and Texas items decorated the area outside of the Killeen Community Center, where Baila Pacifica held its third-annual celebration featuring food, such as bulgogi and musubi, and live performances on two stages from Pacific island dance groups and Asian performing artists. The event also featured a bazaar with a variety of local and out-of-state vendors.
