DULUTH, Minn. – The people of the local Hmong community are getting ready for a celebration this Saturday. The Hmong New Year celebration is happening on Saturday at the First United Methodist Church, also known as the Coppertop Church in Duluth.
It will be a celebration of Hmong culture with traditional music, clothing and of course, great food.
“Coming here to America, a lot of the culture has been disappearing. And it’s important to keep it alive and going,” volunteer Daisy Lor said.
The fun gets underway at 9 a.m. on Saturday, with a program at 11 a.m., and lunch to follow. Its free and open to the public.
