Description

The Westminster Tết Parade in Little Saigon is a beloved community tradition, attracting over 50,000 visitors for a day of celebration.

Event Details

Over 60 organizations including non-profits, school districts, marching bands, parade floats, veteran and youth organizations, martial arts schools, Vietnamese Scouting units, local jurisdictions, and more take to the street to mark the start of the Lunar New Year.

This year’s theme will be “Spring in Gratitude” to show gratitude to ancestors; to Vietnamese, American, and Allied military personnel who sacrificed their lives; and especially to America for taking the Vietnamese community in as refugees and providing a place to proudly call home. Participants are encouraged to show off some special features of the Vietnamese culture as they promenade down Bolsa Avenue, highlighting the rich traditions of the heritage.

Little Saigon’s Tết Parade 2020 will be held on Saturday, January 25, 2020, which falls on the Vietnamese New Year, Year of the Rat. As in previous years, the parade route will begin on Bolsa Ave. at Magnolia and move eastward toward Bushard where it ends.

The Parade will begin at 8 a.m. with opening ceremonies including lion dances, a firecracker show, flag salutes, and many other family-friendly, traditional rituals. Following the end of the parade, another Firecracker Show hosted by the Asian Garden Mall will take place at 12 noon.

That afternoon, festivities will move to Mile Square Park in Fountain Valley for the Vietnamese Tết Festival, hosted by Orange County Supervisor Andrew Do with participation of many other federal, state, county, and local elected officials.

Those looking for evening entertainment can visit the Asian Garden Mall the night before, where a Countdown Celebration will be held on January 24 at 9 p.m., complete with a firecracker show at midnight to usher in the new year. Admission is also free.
