The Asian Pacific American Heritage Association (APAHA) will ring in the Year of the Horse with fiery cultural performances and educational arts and crafts at the Children’s Museum of Houston on Saturday, January 25, 2013. For the last 10 years, APAHA has partnered with the Children’s Museum and CenterPoint Energy to produce this event.

The event will run from 10 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
The highlight of the event will be the cultural performances from 1:00 to 3:30 p.m. in the Brown Auditorium. Traditional Chinese dances will be performed by students of the Oriental Arts Education Center (OAEC) and students of the J&H Dance School. A Lion Dance and Martial Arts will be performed by the TX Teo Chew Temple group.
As a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization, the Asian/Pacific American Heritage Association (APAHA) was formed in 1992 to “promote awareness and increase understanding of the Asian/Pacific American culture and its diversity through education and celebration, focusing on May, Asian Pacific American Heritage Month (APAHM), and continuing throughout the year.” To make a difference in our community, Asian/Pacific American Heritage Association (APAHA) has collaborated with various community and educational entities to provide ongoing educational, cultural and scholarship programs to the Asian/Pacific and Greater Houston communities.
APAHA celebrated their 22 years of service to the community in 2014
