Asian American Expo 2016 ~ Pomona Fairplex

10:23 AM PST on February 17, 2016

[dropcap size=big]L[/dropcap]ast month, our events photographer Erwin Recinos was invited to the Asian American Expo 2016 at the Pomona Fairplex. This event is held at the beginning of each year to celebrate the coming of the Lunar New Year Festival, with a goal of capturing the New Year celebration across Asia. Food, shopping and entertainment are spread across the Fairplex. Coinciding with the AAE2016 is the Anime Impulse where artist and cosplayers come to celebrate with event patrons. It was definitely an eye opening event that every Angeleño should experience at least once. Please enjoy these photos from this year's expo...
